Stone the Crows!

The theme at Awfully Big Art Adventure this week is Crows, and this is my entry. I only had the little crow stamp ( Paper Artsy?) and felt I wanted to use a bigger one, so I made one! Funky Foam. Draw. Cut. Glue Stick. Acrylic block. Done!
The background is Glimmer Mists and the stamping and edging is, you guessed it, Distress Inks.

This is wonderful work - I love the subtle colours and the shadowy effect you've achieved, not to mention being impressed by you making your own stamps! Well done and thanks for taking part in our challenge.
Love

Brilliant. I love the way you've made your own stamp to complement the other. Very resourceful.

Wow, the colours are great. Im impressed that you made your own stamp, how clever, and its worked so well. Very impressive. The glimmer mists are lovely, I have some but i think i need to practice more so that I get better results. Well done Jaqi
