Faces

Bonjour!  I present to you my "Jolie Femme" (Pretty Woman).  (I hope I translated that properly, since my French is very limited.  LOL!)  I've had my eye on Tim Holtz's phrenology stamp for quite some time.  However, I rarely ever buy stamps, because I don't use them much.  As a matter of fact, I recently gave away 3 sets of brand new stamps to a friend, since I had them stashed in a box for years.  However, I got some cash for Father's Day and decided to use it to purchase the set with this image in it.  I have no regrets!  There are so many possibilities for me to use it, so you'll probably be seeing it around.

Jolie Femme By Arnoldo L. Romero
Anyway, after stamping my image on white cardstock, I colored it with pastels, markers, and an ink pad.  Then, I highlighted the eyes and lips with Ranger's Glossy Accents and Stickles respectively.  I designed her hat with origami pieces I made, along with various K&Company die-cuts.  As a finishing touch, I used glue and ArtC heart glitter to design her earrings and necklace.  The tag background is an extra one I made a while back when working on one of my Tim Holtz inspired tags.  I attached the completed head to the background with adhesive pads.  To complete my tag, I added a TH pen nib and a small label with my own calligraphy.

Thank you for taking the time to write such thoughtful comments about my coffee tag two weeks ago.  I made sure to reciprocate the favor by leaving a comment on your tags or blog as well.  Au revoir!
