It needed a crazy background to go with the image so I used a piece from the stash I made when I recently demoed alcohol inks blasted with an air duster. I must use some of them up and this was an ideal chance. I never get fed up playing with these backgrounds but must start to experiment a little with other techniques before I get completely boring.
I stamped an extra image on a scrap of white card, cut out the face and stuck it over the inky face to make it pop. Thanks to my dear friend Leo for this idea and I often use this technique on the faces of geishas... it is very effective.
