Emboss - resist
A technique that uses acrylic glazes, embossing powder and an iron. I scanned the background because I had no idea what to do with it and thought that it may be interesting to see what comes out. This stamp surprised me! I used parts of it several times, not knowing that it is a figure of ... I don't know.... mermaid or something like that. I received it as a gift from Inka stamps (for submitting some art ages ago). I was surprised when I saw a face....I decided to turn the card upside down and liked it much more that way. Here is what I came up with - a vintage reprint, an acetate transparency, words from a dictionary and a layer of sweet smelling beeswax on the top.
