I couldn't take it....
... all of that rubber... sitting there... staring at me... mocking me... I cracked.
Ta da! It was so worth it... ya' know... not getting some of the non-fun stuff done that I really need to get done :) Isn't she awesome?! This is one of the Goddess stamps from Elementals from Smeared Ink... me likey alot. I almost started with regular skin tones and thought better of it... I'm so glad. I think I'll have to buy refill ink for my Copic markers soon, but man I had fun.
I added Crystal Lacquer on the water drop tattoos, eyes & lips... o-so-shiney :) I seriously tried to get a decent photo, but I'm telling you right now the skin shading looks way better in person.
One thing I might do next time is mask off the inked cheek area... I HAVE been know to perform stamp surgery before... cutting out elements or snipping them apart... but I'm thinking Terra might hex me if I did that :) AND this is such a lover-ly stamp image... maybe I'd better stick to masking :)
And just so you know, I've NEVER seen a stamp sheet of rubber so damn thick before! It is unbelievable... I'm just sayin'. Lil' Grumpies is on my list, but I must wait until next month... dammit.
