The Face of a Friend
Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge. It is about a face. I have been wanting to use this Andy Skinner stencil for some time now. This was the perfect challenge for it. My background panel is another piece from a recent gelli plate printing. I added a layer of picket fence stain over the print to lighten it a little and then some spun sugar distress stain to bring out the pinks. I used one of Tim Holtz's shadow press words as the sentiment. It was a little hard to stop there, but I was afraid that adding any more elements would detract from the overall effect. I layered the piece on a black panel and then on a pink card. I really like the effect.
