True Colours

I have heard from Helen at Visible Image that the new Face It! stamps have been very popular. No wonder, as the set is just perfect for so many different kinds of projects. Last time I made an art journal page, and this time a card using pastel pencils for colouring:

Pastel pencils are fun to work with as they blend together so nicely. For blocking the colours from blending too much, the colours need to be fixed with a fixative spray. Instead of the quite expensive art store fixative I like to use simple hair spray for fastening the colour; it works just as well! Once the hairspray was dry I added another layer of colour, sprayed again, and added more colour...
Pastel colours work well also on darker surfaces, like on the kraft card base I used here.

For the face outline I used the matching stencil; the stamps and the stencil work so nicely together. Hope you give it a try, too!

Here are pictures of the Visible Image products I used (click on the pictures for more info):


Wishing you a beautiful week!
