Pencils with Gingersnaps



This is my contribution to the pencil challenge over on Gingersnaps. I was a little disappointed how flat this photo looks. I have actually layered the pencils  and nibs up so that it is far more 3d'ish in real life and I think looks better in real life. Maybe I will try to photograph it again? However it was fun to do and this stamp from Lost Coast Designs just reminded me of a big city skyline, maybe Hong Kong?  I then added the nibs which is a Tim Holtz stamp to gain greater depth and density, just like a city.  I enjoy visual jokes.

Anyway take a look at all the other great creations. Dan has actually used the same stamp but very differently. It is worth taking a look to see how stamps can work in so many ways.


I have added another photo which may show the depth a little better. Still not great but it doesn't look quite so flat.
