Still Stamping

Pretty kitty, Otis, just chillin.
The multi-colored stamp pad experiment worked pretty well. The colors blend as you use the stamp which is a nice effect. The Bombay India Inks and FW Daler Rowney fluorescent inks came out rather antiquey looking. For bolder color I may have to use pigment reinkers.
Experimenting with wreath arrangements too, used all hand carved stamps.

Tile Stamps!!!

Each of these stamps is 1 1/2" square. So fun! I am experimenting painting them, but what I really want to do is make a custom stamp pad so the stamp itself is multicolored. I'll try that tomorrow.

Playing with Stamps

I've made about 40+ of these pod shapes from erasers I bought at the 99 cent store (which I may or may not have hundreds left). If you use archival ink you can watercolor over them and embellish them. Super fun!
I played with some wreath designs and the other one is supposed to be an ocean wave. I got tired of painting them all blue and decided to add some other colors.
