SUNDAY POSTCARD ART - FACES

Here is my postcard for this week's SUNDAY POSTCARD ARTchallenge:



First, I created the background on white cardstock using Ranger distress inks in a variety of greens. The sketched faces are from my daughter's high school art class days and I used a circle nestie to cut them out.  Added some Hero Arts circle stamps and a pretty flourish randomly all over.  The edges are distressed with a red inkpad.

Fun to use some original, if not professional, artwork for this postcard!
