Searching For Hidden Magic Part 2

Few more tries with stamps and clay. I still don't like the colors, except for the red/orange/yellow one. There were few more, but I was too anxious to cut out the shapes and I didn't have time to make pics :). There's one pic of the pieces on the tray before baking though, just for a sneak peek. I have to make some "ordinary" pendats for few gifts so I am sticking with simple forms for now. And I am still warming up, it has been quite some time since my last all-days-just-claying period. Maybe this is the start of a new one, we'll see. Oh, and I tried another thing from new Donna Kato's book (The Art Of Polymer Clay - Creative Surface Effects) - shading with ink pads and stamping on clay. Really nice results and rather simple to do as well. I just haven't figured out yet how to work with transparent clay, so I am not stamping in layers as she shows. I like it all the same.

I love the color combo in the top left picture! It reminds me of gypsies. Or hippies. Isn't it funny what one person thinks is no good, another person thinks is great!!
