Midnight Scene
I have not done very much scene building with rubber stamps.  I have seen it done beautifully, but it hasn't appealed to me yet personally to really delve into it.  
When I saw the theme for this sketchbook, Midnight Scenes, I immediately thought of needing to do some scene building stamping.  I still could not find the enthusiasm for it, so I decided to do it differently.
I used one of my favorite stamps of all time.  I love them owls!  I embossed him black and then pulled out gold acrylic paint and various colors of irradescent ink.  I used my new white charcoal pencil to add the white on the face and breast.  I painted the rest of him up robotozoid style and here he is in all his metallic glory!

Great idea for a Midnight Scene theme, Kay. Your coloring is beautiful. What kind of irridescent ink did you use?
