Marti's Snake Stamp

I hope Marti is OK with snakes. I liked the way this one turned out.
Nice paper makes a big difference - most of the time. IMHO, it is hard to get good brush marker results on cheap paper. I can get OK results with bold flat markers on cheap paper but the OK-ness is probably a result of all the extra layers I add to compensate for the blah-ness that happens with anything on cheap paper. The only thing I can make work - in one layer - on cheap paper is G-Tec.


  1. A friend and I were discussing how much we liked the pet stamps but hated the snake and wondered how we'd use it....our plan was to waste it on a bill. No more! Love your simple and quick brush lettering and will try it. So what kind of wonderful envelope is this created on?

    1. Cranes or WmArthur. Left over from wedding jobs. Nice 100% cotton paper.

  2. Makes my skin a good way, of course.

  3. Love the lettering; hate the snake! I have a terrible fear of snakes. Luckily I have a very good friend. On the day the pet stamps came out, my friend, Faye (yes, the Faye who is now participating in the exchanges), accompanied me to the post office. We both bought stamps. Afterwards she traded my snake stamps for other pet stamps of her choice (but not my favorite beagles). I don't have to worry about having snakes in my stamp stash. Now that is real friendship.
