Good morning and Happy New Year,
We have the first challenge of 2018 on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today, and it's an anything goes.
I created this 12 x 12 mixed media background ages ago, I wanted to try something new, I was going for a galaxy look, it's hard to see just how many, many, many layers there are on this one.
The girl was created using the long loose wave template for her flowing hair along with the head and torso. I've given her quite a long neck, was going for an elegant look.
The female face was stamped for her face, I went for a soft colour pallet all painted with acrylics, layered thinly and using a small paint brush. I think I haven't finished her eyes yet, must have been rushing(the usual).
I was pretty impressed with how well her top turned out, I used the leaf in the peony & bud stamp set, I stamped in grey ink first, painted the leaves in green and re-stamped over to define them. So the bow is from the rag tails template, and works so well on the edge of her top. I fussy cut her out before putting her on the galaxy background.
I'm entering this to a few other challenges...
Thanks for stopping by enjoy a wonderfully creative New Year!
