Faceless Beauty Card

Today I created this card using Unity Stamp's Faceless Beauty stamp.  I am not a talented colorer.  In fact, I told myself that I wouldn't get into coloring since Copic markers can get really expensive fast. However, I do use some Sharpie markers, BIC markers, Tombow ones, whatever I have on hand if I need to color something.  Recently, I have been so impressed by the watercoloring that I have seen on cards!  So that is what I did on my card today.
 I knew I wanted to use purples on this card, and as I was searching through my paper stash, I realized I didn't really have any!  What?  I know, how awful!  Truthfully, with 3 boys and I love PINK, purple paper hadn't caught my eye.  A multipack from Hobby Lobby saved me with these two purple sheets.  The striped paper was a gift from my talented friend, Angeline Choo...Thanks!
 I kept the card pretty simple, the only embellishments are two homemade enamel dots in the top corner.  Both stamped layers are popped up with thin foam tape.
Here is a closeup of that Faceless Beauty.  I am not ashamed to admit that the water colors that I used are a set my boys use to paint with at home :)  I love the perfectly imperfect lines of paint and I added the splatters as well.  I think this face represents a strong, graceful and beautiful woman...one we all can find in our selves!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

  13. Oh, my goodness.....this is just wonderful!!!! LOVE how you colored her. I, too, often use an inexpensive and ancient set (my kids are 25 and 27!) of children's watercolors for my cards. I know we are not the only ones who do that!!!

    Your card is just so pretty. Love the background papers and how you matted everything with black. Very dramatic look.
    Saw you on Unity FWF.

  15. You know? I'm not one of those stampers who loves to color perfectly neither. I admire those beautiful colored works for projects but sometimes I think it's not about the perfect coloring. I love the imperfect coloring a d the handmade factor in the images. So really I love the final result on your project. Thanks for sharing.

  16. The splatter really tie up the background with the beautifully colored image.
