Ornamental doodling at 1AM

Well, it's 1:oo am now and I can't find sleep yet so I decided to just mess around with some new stamps I carved tonight of some historical ornamental flowers and acanthus leaves. I will show you the stamps individually tomorrow maybe but I made this hodge podge ornamental doodle. Nothing was planned, I just stamped around a d tried to fill in the spaces with some filigree. It was fun actually. but now I am yawning and typing things wrong. So good night for now. Hopefully Mr Sandman is coming my way.

Talk about 1 o'clock brilliance. Those stamps are fantastic. And darn but that is an amazing doodle! I can see the flourish influence from your recent conference. Stunning as always, and I think you are the doodle Queen!

Martha, those stamps are stupendous. You could sell stamps on your Etsy shop. They're beautiful.

Nancy said...

Wow! I think you are a "night person" at heart. This is beautiful, and hope it relaxed you to the point of sleep.

Very cool Martha! You've pulled the different styles and elements together very well - and at 1am to boot! :)
