The strong colours work well, though I still don't like the mouthless images and would have to draw one on lol.

I love this, you are so clever and have such a wonderful imagination for creation. I struggle constantly with putting together layouts and quite often have to use magazines etc for ideas. I love the little pieces of colour all over this, it really works. Well done on another lovely card

It all goes together really well. I am another one who would have to draw a mouth on though.

As soon as I saw it I thought, oh Nona would love it, except the missing nose and mouth, aren't we a funny lot?

The background is black but it looks brown in the photo and I agree that they can look better with mouths on, except when i draw the mouths on, then they just look a bit insane!

I do that but the paler colours don't show in the photo, depends what face base colour I use, will have a go at an actula mouth shade on a different card

I have two of the tilda stamps and an edwin. When I want to do a mouth its usually a small ' u ' shape but shallower if that makes sense. Or just try a dot.
