The Bionic Woman
Here is a card that I finished last night which I really like. It is part of a swap called "Lucky Lady Dip". The way it works is that there is a long list of different types of "women". You choose 4 you want to do and make a card out of each one. My 4 choices were "Vintage Beach Babe", "Blonde Bombshell", "Tatooed Lady", and this one which is "Bionic Woman".
I started with some watch parts but it wasn't "digital" looking enough for me so I searched around the house for an old calculator I could rip apart. I cut down the circuit board and cut up the keys and started gluing. The face is printed on a transparency and glued over a piece of frosted plastic. I then backed the face with white paper so the part that hangs off the circuit board would show up better. The rest is some watch parts, a few pieces of metal tape around the edges and some resistors.
I have to go finish the other "ladies" so I'll be back to post them later.
