This intriguing technique was featured in the April/May 2009 Technique Junkie Newsletter. I stamped the train image with VersaMark ink on a scrap of newspaper and embossed it with clear powder. Next I brayered Basic Black ink over the paper and wiped the embossed areas clean with a soft paper towel. I tore all four edges and matted the image with Whisper White card stock (also with torn edges, which were sponged with Going Gray ink).
The sketch I used is one of Brenda Quintana’s WICKED challenges on the demo side of SCS this month (May 2009). I used Walk in the Park Designer Series Paper for the two corner pieces, and one strip of Going Gray card stock. The filigree designer brad was paired with a black vintage brad and placed in the top left corner of the image panel.
Thanks for stopping by!
