Just Playin' Around

 I posted both pictures because one shows the glitter better than the other.

 While everyone that I know was watching the football game, I decided to go to Michael's Crafts and use my 20 percent off all items including sale items coupon.

I bought some new stamps and of course I always have to see what they look like when I stamp them.  I used a sheet of copy paper and stamped them.  When I saw how cool they looked it made me want to color them.  I bought some glitter paint a month ago and I thought since I was just playing around, I would use them.  I'm not that much of a glitter person but I do like how these turned out.  The paint appears to be translucent, which made it so that I could paint an entire area without worrying about going over the black outlines.  I didn't have a full selection of colors so I end up using my Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils on the bird nest and the owl. 

I LOVE these stamps.  The owl, the heart and the bird nest were from the dollar bin at Michael's.  I cute.  The bugs and the butterfly's are from an Inkdo set.  It also came with a great big butterfly but I messed it up when I tried to use Stickles to make the body standout.  The flourishes are a set of clear stamps.  I only stamped one from the set.  I went over one flourish with my Micron pen (obviously the darker one on the bottom.)  I LOVE it.  Can't wait to use them in future artwork.  Notice the ladybug frame on the filmstrip stamp.  Again, I went over the image with a Micron pen and used my white Signo pen to bring out the white.  I also colored the tufts and eyes on the owl with the Signo pen


  1. So cute. I love that little owl, as I am sure you would know. is that film strip a stamp? Great job.

  2. I knew you would love the owl. The three stamps were actually $1.50. Really cute! Yes, the filmstrip is a stamp. It came with the Inkadoo set that I bought. I love them all.
