Outside our hotel room last week there was a picture hanging on the wall that I really loved.
I thought the white silhouette against the brown inky background would work really well with stamping and resist embossing - so here is my take on it.
The stamp I have used is a very, very old one which I think came from a sheet of stamps produced by Trish Bayley - I would think it was around 1995. I stamped and embossed it with clear powder, then tore paper with a deckle edged ruler to use as a mask to create a frame around it and blended distress inks into the exposed area. After removing the mask, I stamped the sentiment - this stamp is a mere youngster, being from a Hot Off The Press set that I bought from QVC only about 20 years ago!
At first glance this really doesn't look like a one layer card because thanks to the masking, it appears to have more depth than it actually has.
