Ultra Violet Paperbabe Postcard: Challenge #65

It's time for another Challenge over at Paperbabe Stamps
with this Fortnights theme being a Picture Inspiration Challenge #65 
inspired by the Pantone colour of 2018 Ultra Violet.

Described as provocative, thoughtful and a dramatic shade of purple
I have tried to introduce each of these elements into my project.

Here is my Ultra Violet Papebabe Postcard and those How to do's

Using the mini portrait template, face stamps and hair template I positioned,
sketched around, stamped then lay down my dominant water soluble colours 
scribbling them onto watercolour card and activated with water.

Building up the detail of the eyes, skin, and hair more colour was added to the background helping define the hair. Rubbing a wet wipe over a stencil I had placed over the background area I lifted off some of that dark colour leaving the impression of the stencil behind.

Lilac Glitter lips and eyelashes adds a dramatic touch!
With the final detail added using a fine liner.

An embossed rose embellishment gives her a corsage choker
necklace with those final hair highlights added with a white pen.

My Ultra Violet Paperbabe Postcard is complete..

It's Friday and the weekend awaits, hopefully with lots of 
spare time to craft away those chill out hours?? 

I hope you can find time to pop on over HERE and see the Design Teams
Super inspirational makes and hopefully join in with the challenge too!

Hope to see you over THERE.

Have a wonderful weekend
