Warrior Girl

I made this card for my niece, an amazing young woman who I love to bits; she is a true warrior.  I've used it as my Inspiration piece (because she inspires me) for the latest Craft Stamper blog challenge.
Here's how I made this card.....
I stamped the gorgeous headdress from Aall and Create stamps  (you can find both the stamps I've used here on the Artist Trading Post website!)
 Masked it off...…..
 Stamped and coloured face...………...also Aall and Create....
 Forgot to take a pic as I got carried away, but I used just 2 Paperartsy Infusions (Golden Sands and Are You Cerise). Then Kuratake pens to colour eyes, hair and headdress.

 Added hair. Used the top of the headdress to stamp a border and painted gold Metallics inside the feathers.....
 Printed the workd out. Did the same with Infusions and stamping on a piece of card to layer up the text...…..
 Added my own scratchy lines to the text to match the look of the stamp...……….
 Love how she turned out.
 After pics I changed the eye colour to brown as my niece has brown eyes.....❤
There's a  chance to win a fab Tattered Butterfly Bigz Die up for grabs and be featured in the mag if you enter the challenge and win! 
Thanks so much for looking.
