Lady Face Cards

After seeing Dina Wakley's YouTube, Learn to Draw Artistic Faces
and borrowing Jane Davenport's book,
Drawing and Painting Beautiful Faces from the public library
I started sketching faces...
on the back of envelopes, on scrap paper, everywhere.
For these cards, I made a few sketches on white cardstock,
added some color with colored pencils and markers, then cut them out.
 I used Lynette's Stampin' Up! Notably Ornate Set
and added some of my own stamps to create some simple vintage, shabby-chic cards.

Used wrinkle free distress backgrounds from my stash
sponging additional color on them.

Stampin' Up! Notably Ornate, Friendship's Journey, Antique Collectibles, Letters from Friends,
Hero Arts
Dawn Houser

Distress Inks
mowed lawn, festive berries, spiced marmalade,  fossilized amber, wild honey, pumice stone, brushed corduroy

Colored pencils & Distress markers

At first I thought the face was the same on all cards and wondered how you made her expression look different. Then I looked again. HA! Nice job on the collage.
