Making Faces


I stamped 3 styles of faces onto various different bases, ie matt card, glossy card and different thickness's of tissue paper.


Then I played with some backgrounds using silver mirri card, embossing folders, alcohol inks and treasure gold.


Then black card, embossing folders, metallic pan pastels and treasure gold.


And created these. Here they are in more detail below.


Image from T!m Holtz Classics #5 set, coloured with portfolio pastels on white matt card. Background embossed script coloured with metallic PP's and a piece of embossed mirri card and words added.


Left - Sunset and Lemonade alcohol inks onto glossy card, pieces of coloured cd added to decorate.
Middle - coloured with distress marker pens, ripped and posca pen doodling added.
Right - coloured with portfolio pastels, ripped and edged in black pen. Piece of blue coloured acetate over eye.
Image used on all by Hampton Art and all mounted onto plain black card.


Image from T!m Holtz Artful Artifacts stamp plate. Coloured with portfolio pastels, mount onto black card. Silver mirri card embossed in Dymo machine with 'obsession' and coloured with stream alcohol ink and black paint. Cd pieces used to embellish.


And finally this image was stamped onto glossy card with versa mark and heat embossed in black embossing powder. Coloured with metallic colours of perfect pearls, added onto a piece of black card and white posca pen doodling.

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
