Springing Forth from the Earth


Ever since the release of this set, Tulips and the Daffodils set, I’ve wanted to try a little “black magic”, although it’s not the true technique where you stamp with white pigment ink and color.


I started by stamping and heat embossing with clear embossing powder, then colored with Prismacolor pencils. The verse is in gold. I also used Double Stitched Rectangles, and Pierced Rectangles.

Since this is an open image, obviously stamping with white ink wouldn’t have changed anything, but maybe next time I’ll try painting with white acrylic paint first then coloring!

Thanks for stopping by!
