SWETPEA DT INSPIRATION

This is another first for me I thought I'd try colouring with pencils (Polychromo and Prisma) on Brown card.  Nothing special about this card just used some recycled card  - a little course but I quite liked the natural bits in the card.




The image I used was another Karen Middleton stamp called simply FACE 3.  There are three stamps in this series, Face 1, Face 2 and Face 3 although there are many other stamps by Karen Middleton featuring female head and shoulders - all quite difference and beautiful is their own rights.



Techniques:

Medium:  Pencils and Solvent for blending, Vintage Photo distressing ink
Papers:   Brown cardstock, Craftwork cards paper

Dies used:   Marianne dies used for framing image, Spellbinders corners, Memory box Butterfly, Spellbinders large flower
Embellishments:   Bow, Pearl flourishes, flat back pearls small and large

Best wishes,
