Here is my Design Team Project for the Challenge
I used an MDF Portrait Board from my own stash and I created a Half Face Portrait in the Big Eye style that I really love
First I painted both MDF parts using White Gesso
I then used some of the Portrait Templates from Paperbabe to draw the Face, Torso and Hair, I then added her facial details using the Mini Female Face stamp set. I painted the background using a light bluey grey watercolour, I used watercolours to paint her face, torso and hair.
I added a bubble effect to the background using black and white acrylic paints and some bottle lids and pen tops for the different size bubbles.
I used some clear embossing ink and a mixture of embossing powders in Blue, Pearl and White around the edges of the MDF boards, heating with a heat gun.
I used the Butterfly Pieridae stamp set to create the butterflies on vellum, the pink colour was from a distress ink and then i used clear embossing ink and white embossing powder, I cut them out and glued to the portrait, I cut a wing off of one butterfly so it looks like it has its wings folded
