Again I used a lot of 3rdEye stamps for creating texture for an interesting
background. Along with them I stamped the raven and some feathers from my awesome Crafty Individuals stamp set (I had almost forgotten about).
The quotes are some cut outs from a Red Lead stamp I recently bought and which I love simply because of the encouraging feel it gives.
to very light washes and sprinkled and splotted them onto my page randomly.
I blotted off some excess using an old cotton towel.
For painting the bright orange outlining of the raven's image I used DecoArt multi - surface Satins "orange sherbet" and a thin brush.
The leaves border on top, the branches, the script and the brick wall are all 3rdEye and were stamped with black jet archival ink and painted over afterwards.
The brown dots were made by applying acrylic colour through a stencil using a bristel brush and very thick colour.
The black frames around the quotes were drawn using a black indian ink pen.
I also added a little texture by brushing on some white Gesso through a stencil.
I enter The Artistic Stamper 's september challenge "Autumn" with this page. And as I stamped mainly onto acrylic colours and Gesso, I also enter it to SSS's Monday challenge "Stamping on Anything but Plain Paper!".
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful crafty week!
