Fun With Faces

Hello.  Welcome.  There's a new face over at PaperArtsy.   Here's my version

I sketched my girl, grabbed a black pen and inked in the lines.  I would suggest if you do this that the black pen you grab is water fast.  Of course, mine wasn't LOL.  Why make it easy????

I coloured.  Skin a mix of FF Rose and white.  Hair a mix of FF Butternut and burnt sienna.  Face highlights a mix of FF Rose and burnt sienna

Then I forgot to take more photo's cos I was having too much fun.  I decided to go red and black.  Her jumper is red acrylic stamped with a couple of stamps from MME Indie Chic Ginger - Pictures set.  The background is Fired Brick Distress Stain stamped with two free stamps from Quick Cards magazine.  I stamped the flourish with Brilliance archival Rocket Red Gold and the butterfly with black archival

I inked the edges with black archival and mounted on Bazzill Blackberry Swirl.

I've done three of the four faces Clare shared.  If you would like to check out my previous masterpieces the tag on the left is here, the card on the right is here
