Keren Inspired card

Hello everyone, I've not been on blog land for a while as life was threatening to take over. It's just been busy, busy, busy, with the new baby, new job, de cluttering etc. but today I got to play.

On the Paper Artsy blog this week was Keren Baker, she brought 3 fantastic projects which you see here. I loved them all but the simplicity of her first project inspired this card.

I used the face from Lynne  Perrella 025  plate  from Paper Artsy but instead of printing several I used my new fibralo pens which I bought at Stamparama last week.

First paint your surface with a fresco finish acrylic from PA, using black archival ink a stamped the face.

 I heat dried this and once it was dry added some colour. With a damp brush I pulled the colour to fill the  spaces.

I added some gems

And the final card

Thank you for your visit, hope to see you soon
