Card of the Day-Friday

Happy Friday!
I am using a watercolor and embossed layer from my stash.
It's nice to make extra, when you have your watercolor paints out.
Makes it quick and need to wait for the paint to dry!
Today I sponged the edges with distress distress weathered wood.

As I've mentioned before, I love Michael Strong's mini flowers.
For today's card I stamped them in distress festive berries and abandoned coral 
(which was a 2nd impression to get the lighter look).

After seeing YouTubes by Dina Wakley and Jane Davenport in the last few months,
I have been compelled/obsessed to try and draw faces! 
...with the emphasis on trying!
Every time I give it a try, my faces look different. 
I wish I could control the look, but in the meantime, it's been therapy just drawing! 

I thought I'd share my attempts. 
I didn't like the brown or blonde/yellow for the hair.
Was inspired to use blue after seeing Jane Davenport's pictures with pink and blue hair.
