Texture Stamps-Marley's Fish

Look at what Gail Garbe did with the "Marley's Fish" texture stamp!
I love this. Gail says that she used a metal container that she got from a thrift store. She used black clay and German Silver Gilders paste to get the effect.

3 New Texture Stamp Designs

Today we are releasing 3 new Texture Stamp Designs.

The first one is Hootenanny
This one was designed for us by a Graphic Designer.  You can isolate the Owls and use them individually or use them all together. Lots of different texture areas to choose from.

The second one is Marley's Fish
This one was designed for us by a budding art student before she left home in Ontario to go to the University of the Arts far away in the UK.
I remember when I was a young student studying Illustration (oh my...I don't even want to count how many years ago that was!).  I had created a rather large pen and ink drawing of the 7 wonders of the world for an assignment.  A friend of the family bought it from me for $200.00 (lots of money at the time), had it framed and then hung it in her real estate office.  I still look back at that with fond memories because someone cared enough to validate my work and give me the courage to move forward with my dreams.
This was my way to give back. Good Luck Marley!!

I love these sassy little fish.  They bring a smile to my face every time I see them.  Lots of different areas of texture to choose from.

The third one is called Tendrils.
Drawn by moi! this one has an organic feel with lots of movement and a variety of textures to choose from.

Purchase all 3 together and save $5.00!
