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.

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
