this is exactly what the title says lol
i often get asked how DID you do that?
so here is a small insight into how my brain works...scarey huh?
here is a dress and an arm
the following is how to make the arm :>
get a butterfly punch.
i used the large butterfly from su and punched out the top of the butterfly
then i am left with the punched out bit (add to scraps-although having said that it could be used as a head band/ribbon for a girl's head-are you seeing this as well?)
you want to keep the card with the punched out space
place the punch back in and wriggle it around so you are about 3mm distance
(this changes on the chunkiness of your person's arms btw :>)
punch it out and take that bit
ooooh now you have a shadow that looks like the sydney opera house:>
take the piece you have and cut off where i have coloured in with the blue
unless, of course, you want weird crazy looking armpits and elbows......
then add cool stuff to your arm if you want it sticking out
i am quite partial to wine glasses and bling myself :>
or just get that sassy thing going on and put it behind the back
(really good idea if the thought hands and fingers does your head in)
or throw them out the front so they can hold something
like a present or flowers or a baby or whatever:>
i would also LOVE LOVE LOVE to hear how you make arms using punch art.
