Two cards here cos I changed my mind half way through…
This one’s been glimmer misted but of course you can’t see that – and I think the colours go together better in real life :)  It looks more true to life in PSP but not on this page – strange.  The background card perfectly matches the Pool ink on the face background and is a kind of Jade colour - the turquoise is a slightly different shade from what you can see.
(NOTE to Jan - I've tried but can't find an email link or address anywhere on your blog, so these stamps are from Crafty Individuals.   The ones below are (L to R) Paperartsy (Ink and the Dog), Paperbag Studios and again, Crafty Individuals.)

The background to this is an alcohol ink background and it’s really rich looking, with a lot of depth – shame you can’t see that.  I was wanting to use faces from people stamps I have, rather than use my face stamps –  just a little bit of a play.
