Disappearing Act

Michelle Ward's Crusade this month is 
a pretty good technique.
I decided to try it on one of my stock backgrounds.
This is what came out.
I know! I know!
The colors didn't match so well!
I applied it on the whole background.
It looked like a rich brocade wallpaper.
So I got inspired to make a face...
and added a body.
Still not yet finished as I had to leave.
My son wanted to watch a dance competition,
so I did a disappearing act! 
Family calls!

    You know, I like the idea of a stash of stock backgrounds! I'm starting to work small - altered art/paper crafts/ATC - this could be a good thing to do and then seek inspiration for filling them in later . . .

    Love how you made the colors and stamps work in proportion to each other. And adding another element--the woman--is a great idea. You took this challenge to a whole new place!

  17. What a great result! I love the stamp you used and the colour combination. Thanks for sharing.

  19. Looks great, some gorgeous wall paper that would be!

  20. Patsy - I had the same problem with my backgrounds not matching. I got much better results when I re-did the backgrounds and then stamped with the same colours. Love your background and brilliant face drawing!

  21. I loved your colors and what a beautiful background for your painted face!
