these are great Jo, I can't believe how different the stamp looks by using the different mediums and colours.

Carrie said...

I love how you overstamp so effectively and how you use different colours so well.

Kaz said...

oooo very dark Jo, they are both gorgeous but I LOVE that top one, it's like an angel watching over everyone...... I wish...lol
beautiful as ever. :)

Audrey said...

First one made my think of lyra in the Philip Pulman books... love how both are so different, yet effective.

"not bad" for a "just playing" LOLOL

Don't you love the aspect of doing art where "just playing" results in something wonderful! These are great examples of that! Too bad we don't live closer, it would be fun to have a "play date".

really interesting to look at Jo. very moody. i particularly like the first one - it reminds me of a war torn city.

Karin said...

Ahhhhhhhh these are great Jo. Like them both as much as each other the first for the detail and the second tfor the texture.

Both of these have such a beautiful haunting effect. They are gorgeous. Love the image.

Vickie said...

Jo, I really like these. The evoke a feeling that's somewhat haunting of the serenity one longs for. The color in the second one is serene. I think I'm going to have to get my stamps out and play more.
