Paperbabe Stamps Challenge ~ Oriental Journal Page

Hello everyone!!!
Hope you're keeping well and safe... and Congratulations to all on their the exam results, I hope it will help them move forward to their next adventure.

We have a new challenge up on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today,
It's an anything goes, so I added to my small art journal, it's great to have a space for experimenting... 
I drew the hair first with the messy buns template, as this would be nearer the top of the page, then stamped 3/4 view right face, and neck in black ink.
I moved onto her Hand and arm, and with the arm mask in place I stamped the peony from Oriental Zen for her tattoo.
With the masking technique I've added a few Cherry Blossoms to her hair. Her top and sleeve was really this inspiration behind this I have had this paper for ages and thought it would make great clothing. I have added a gold circle and using the 3mm Stripe stencil with black pen for the background.

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #125 ~ 1st SKETCH

Hello and welcome
We have a new challenge up on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today,

In fact this sketch was the first Paperbabe stamps challenge back in August 2014 and I thought it would be fun to revisit it...
I started by creating a watercolour panel based off the sketch using the 
I then stamped along with the Female Face 3/4 view Left, the Dinky Hands setI used just four Neocolor II pastels to colour her in, the Prussian Blue, Cobalt Blue, Turquoise Blue and Lilac. 
I colour matched a few distress oxides to stamp more flourishes, dots, drops and extras, I think I would like to try this again and add lots of white doodles, just didn't quite have the time.
 The sentiment was from the Flourish and Grow set.
