Stay Strong


I recently won Amy Tsuruta's de-stash giveaway on Instagram. She sent me some awesome Hero Arts stamps --- and I couldn't wait to ink this foliage background stamp up!
I created the background by painting oxides on mixed media paper and then adding colorburst powders over top. I then stamped the foliage stamp in versamark ink and embossed it in green.

  • Big Bloom Factory (Stamplorations)
  • Foliage Bold Prints Background Stamp (Hero Arts)
  • Washi Tape
  • Sequins 
  • Crochet Dies (Sizzix - Tim Holtz)
  • Versamark Watermark Ink

  • Green Embossing Powder
  • Brilliance Moonlight White Ink (Tsukineko) 
  • White Gel Pen

Congrats on your win and oh what a great sentiment and reminder that is for someone going through a rough patch. Pretty in all of it's shades of green.
