Create and Share Journal:  Golden Blossoms
I love acrylic stamps.  There is no better way to place an image than by seeing where it is going.  I used a single stem stamp to stamp the vine image several times in dye based ink to make it seem to meander across the page.  I used a small blossom stamp to stamp the flowers in red pigment ink along the vine.  I further heat embossed the blossoms with red embossing powder to give them dimension.  My final touch was coming back with some champagne gold acrylic paint and painting in the negative spaces on the blossoms.  I was really happy with how this experiment turned out.  Can't you see this across the front of an envelope or on some stationary?
