Here is a new page I created in my art journal. I wanted to experiment with using ink over an embossed image.
The quote on the tag reads:
" And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom" - ANAIS NIN
I started by stamping the butterfly (CTMH) with VersaMark ink and heat embossing it with Zing white embossing powder. Then I started layering on Tim Holtz Distress Inks in the new fall colors. "Ripe Persimmon, Seedless Preserves, and Gathered Twigs" - now aren't those the yummiest names ever for inks? I just love how intense the colors are, and so versatile - see how dark they are on the tag but lighter on the page itself? Next I decoupaged a napkin on to the page - that is what all the pansies and writing are. Then stamps and rub-ons, more ink, and a final coat of Mod Podge.
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments (and followers!)
