Handsome: a spread in my Hands AB

I have been saving images of hands for years, and the same goes with words and quotes from my computer. When I have an extra bit of space on a page, such as the shaving cream paper page, I print a quote or saying. This time it was "Handsome," and when I found it, I went looking for an image that would fit the bill. I drew a hand around the image, then cut it out and tried to shadow it. Since I didn't have any charcoal, I used a regular graphite pencil (number 2, I think), then erased it. Not sure I got the effect I wanted, but I tried. The background is blue pigment ink. I added the swirls from a stamp.
