Pen Pattern Bird

I have always admired this stamp but have only just gotten around to using it. I'm glad I did. here are three very different ways of using this stamp.

On gloss cardstock using Pallete Hybrid inks applied with a large round soft brush. Highlights added with metallic and white gel pens.

Coloured pencil on cream cardstock. Pencil was blended with Gamsol and paper stumps.

I embossed with white detail embossing powder. I applied Aged enamels to some areas using a Versamark pen. 

I used metallic gel markers for the other areas.Gold dimensional paint dots were added to the background.

Raven Skull

I know this stamp is not to everyone's taste but I loved colouring it and was very pleased with the end result. Of course it is an American Halloween inspired stamp but I often get asked if I have anything with skulls for those people who are into the Gothic lifestyle. You know......Goths! There are people out there who just like skulls too.
