29 Faces (Day 2) - Styrofoam Girl

The kids are off at the grandparents and Corey and I decided to get take out for dinner which came in styrofoam containers.  Styrofoam is rarely ever in this house so I snatched one box up - removed the lid and carved a girl into it.  LOVE the look of this - so minimal but still pretty.
Water soluble block ink was brayered onto the styrofoam and then pressed onto a piece of kraft paper.  VOILA - Instant gratification!! 
I think the styrofoam is pretty on its own too - from trash to treasure!!
