Grinch face tutorial, part 2
Punch two 1 3/8" circles from Mellow Moss. trim a bit off the the circle to make a line on one part. Glue the circles on under the hat trim with the lines at an angle (like an angry face). Cut 1/4" wide x 1 1/2" long black rectangles for the eyebrows. Glue them along the slants of the circles. You now have eyebrows! Use red sparkle brads or gems for the eyeball centers.
Punch the mid-sized boho blossom from Wild Wasabi. Cut flower in half across the center at the inverted points. Use a craft sponge or dauber to ink the edges with Chocolate Chip classic ink. Glue nose between the eyes. Using the negative image of the top note cutout (from your Wild Wasabi paper), Make the Grinch's mouth. Center the point over the point of the chin, and trace with a black Stampin Write marker. Only use a bit of the lines on each side of the point. Stop and turn the top note and trace the curve on either side. Make the mouth however you wish (wide smile, narrow, etc.). Freehand draw a curve from the point of the mouth to the tip of the nose, and the "dimple" marks on the edges of the mouth. Your front panel is now finished.
