The 'Wednesday Stamper' Challenge, Pens, Pencils & Brushes

Here is what I came up with for the 'Pens, Pencils & Brushes' over at 'Wednesday Stamper' this week. I took a picture of a few things I like to work with and printed it off twice. Once on pc paper and once on vellum. I overlayed the print on top of the vellum. The pen 'nib' is the only stamp I used, plus the photo ...which included the 'hand' stamp. I also used clip art and a piece of sandpaper. This collage was a challenge for me!

Not quite what I hoped for, but it is interesting to have it finished .. whew! (and...I did try to use a pen with nibs yesterday and the nib would not hold ink long enough to write one letter. Any suggestions?

Great photo, I love the effect of the vellum and the brightness of the photo on regular paper.
And for the pen nib, try to put the nib on a piece of paper, slightly and very gently press a little so that the nib opens a tiny bit, and then use it with ink, most of the time doing this once with a new nib should solve the problem. I hope I made myself clear, but please remember to be very careful because with to much pressure the tip will stay open and you can use it anymore.
