All about face

The challenge at That's Crafty is All About Face.  I used the "Windows to the soul"  stamp by Donna Downey for the face and masked it.  I then used DecoArt Media Misters, in layers with stencils, before the last layers I makes 6 circles with punched card and painted over the stenciling with a mix of paints and DecoArt Neon paints so the stenciling could show through.  I wanted to keep the face fairly plain to balance the busy background and coloured with water colour pencil and neon pink lips.

Avery 2

Another experiment using the Avery stamp by Donna Downey, this time on acrylic paper using acylic paint, stamping and rub-ons sort of Christy Tomlinson style.  I extended the stamp  by drawing a longer body. I am entering this into the That's Crafty All About Face challenge.

I have been experimenting using the same stamp in different substrates and with different mediums.  The stamp is Avery by Donna Downey Studios and here I have used Brusho in the background on water colour paper and acrylic paints on the face. I changed some of the features on the face to give this finish.I am entering this into the Thats Crafty Challenge  All About Face
