Less is More: EmbossingPosted: May 14, 2011
When I first began browsing the Darkroom Door site, I kept coming back to this stamp. Images of trees are a favorite of mine and this scene of a wooded path is the type of scene I try to create with tree stamps.
This week’s challenge at Less is More is to emboss; I chose to heat emboss the woodland scene in black, then add some colour by sponging. I didn’t know if the detail of so many fine interwoven branches would work without detail embossing powder but I am very pleased with the result. Before sponging I masked the edges of the image.
I am looking forward to trying other colour schemes and techniques with this beautiful stamp.
