Doll of Color

Hello My Lovelies!

Ok, let's be honest... As this is a first post, all I'm really hearing right now is crickets. But I digress.

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for an exchange at Kit & Clowder.

 This image is one of my original drawings turned painting. If you see this and think 'Russian Nesting Doll' then your right on track as that is the look I was going for, adding my own personal flare. I've made a few of these before but never so small as to fit on a card, thought the end result was really nice and I might try making a few more of these. About 95% of this card was made with Tim Holtz Distress inks, the rest of it is gold and white acrylic paint and some texture past. 

 A second image that hopefully enlarges to show the detail on the face sadly the image doesn't enlarge and I don't have the original to take a close up. The eyelashes, eyebrows and the outline on the eye's and lips was made with a Tim Holtz Marker. And yes the splats on the face were intentional, thought not in placement, I like to splat these images with some of the excess 'paint' colors that I use. 

And thus concludes my first post for this blog. Comments? Questions? Let me know what you think.
