Postcard swap"hand drawn faces"

In my art group there is a monthly postcard swap. This month the theme is "Hand Drawn faces". I used a mixture of Caran'dache water soluable crayons, water colour pencils and acrylic paints. The background was done with lots of different layers, torn vintage paper, paper napkins, gesso and golden fluid acrylics.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
