more stamped animals

the "Out of Africa" series continues

yesterday I finally got to do the first stampings of these two animals

both of these need a lot of embellishing with other paints, markers, embroidery and beads, but on the whole I'm pleased with the stamps

and the gazelle has a "friend" -- I actually cut two gazelle stamps -- the other one faces the other way

so there will be more stamping today (I'm also stamping some panels for my friend in California who wants to include them in something she's working on)

and I've been playing with the idea of making a bigger panel that has all of the animals on it, so I'll be working with some paper cutouts of the stamps to figure out a design -- we'll see how that goes
