Kindred Stamps November Release | G'Day

Hello Everyone! I hope everyone is having a great day. I'm so excited to be apart of the first Kindred Stamps Video Design Team. What an honor and how fun are these new stamps!?

I was fortunate enough to get to play with the G'day Stamp set, part of Kindred Stamps November release. This set includes 5 words/phrases that you can customize to create your own sentiment. Plus a rugged male character and a cute little Koala Bear ❤

I wanted to go with a fun background for these 2 characters. So I used alcohol inks on the background. I used straight black alcohol ink and did not mix any blending solution so that the black ink would paint over the background and not blend in to it. 

The Koala is a mix of cool and warm grays and I added texture with small dots in the shadows. The "rugged gentleman" as I call him, I thought would look a little more rugged with a five o'clock shadow. I also added interest with glossy accents to areas of his hat, clothes and the koala's nose and eyes. 

The G'day stamp set also comes with this awesome Happy Birthday stamp that I used on the inside. Plus I couldn't resist using the koala one more time, grant it more simply, by just stamping him in black ink above the birthday sentiment.
