From the Herd

I loved this stamp when I first saw it, and I finally started making cards with it this month! With 7 children, we often feel quite like a "herd," so this is a perfect greeting from our family. I stamped the image on watercolor paper in Staz On Black, then colored with inks and the Aquapainter. To use your inks this way, smoosh (that's the technical term) the lid while the case is closed. When you open it, there's a little puddle/smear of ink for you to dip your Aquapainter in!

There are clouds and sky at the top of the image, but they're hard to see in the photo. The other thing that's hard to see is how I accented the eyes of all the animals:

I used Crystal Effects on all the eyes to bring a little freaky shine to them. {smile}

There are some great sentiments in this set, and I'll be sharing more samples of them soon! The set is available in photopolymer (my preference), clear mount, and wood mount.
