Paperbabe Stamps April Release

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good week so far. Today is preview day 1 for Paperbabe Stamps April release and we're working with the new Doll Face mini set which is a great addition to the collection, it's the perfect size for cards. Kim has also designed some great new mixed media templates that can be cut out then drawn around to create head and shoulders and hair styles to go with the doll face stamps faces, they can also be used as a drawing aide which takes all the pain out of creating mixed media portraits.

I wasn't able to work with the templates for my card today unfortunately but I know they're going to be used very soon as all the styles are gorgeous.

My mixed media style card uses the doll face mini stamps over a background of gelato watercolour with some stencilling of hearts, letters and numbers. I further coloured with pencils and added detailing with black and white pens. I stamped a sentiment from the Just Because stamp set and mounted the face panel onto a white card blank with dimensional foam to finish.

There's lots of inspiration from my DT friends at the Paperbabe Stamps blog and I'm back tomorrow with my next sample.
