Dina Wakley Small Face Stamps

I just picked up some small Dina Walkey face stamps at Michael's. I've seen them before, but finally decided to take the plunge and buy another set of stamps.
I love the sketchy look, because it allows you to be a bit more abstract with the coloring. These will be fun to add to tags, cards, journal pages, etc.

This is how it started. I first just painted some random water color splotches on paper. Be sure to leave some white areas.
Then I stamped the faces over the paint. I like to have the face image cover at least two colors of paint.
Then roughly cut out the images...
Add additional color, black lines and stamp on black marks/texts.
I also stamped a set of faces onto some of my left over scrap painted background paper.
These are some of the supplies I used for the embellishments. Stamps from Ashley Goldberg, Dina Wakley, Rubber Moon and Donna Downey.
Fun stamps to play with, I hope I've inspired you to use some of your supplies to create something different.
The background paper is from Michael's Recollection collection - Twinkle twinkle little that script.

This is last minute, but if you're interested in a short mini workshop to create some of these images this Thursday, Jan 26th 10:30-12:30 $15 message me, I'll send you the details.

Happy New Years!
