A new DS4J digistamp used for embossing
This digistamp "He is risen" is another new one I drew and is in my shop Digistamps4Joy.I decided to do something quite different this time. I printed out the black/white image onto plain white paper, put this on the light table with a piece of gold vellum on top of it, then traced over all the lines with a white gel pen!
Why, you ask? Well the reason is I wanted to see if I could create a pergamano image from the digistamp, and normally in the pergamano craft, you first trace all lines with white ink, then go and do the embossing and rubbing on the back of the image. Pergamano is a craft that requires a LOT of patience and good eyesight, and this card took me quite a while to rub out and prick! But it actually worked!! So, I have now used a digistamp as a pattern for Pergamano - howz that!!
Here's a close-up of the 'fish' shape and words.
The edge of the shape around the image was created by laying a wavy-edged oval shaped die on top, then tracing around with the white gel pen, and pricking and pricking and pricking around the edge until the outside piece of vellum could be torn off. The curvy line near the edge is embossed from the back by hand. The rest of the card is made up of a piece of white paper that I bought ages ago, with all the stitching and gold glitter on it. I punched 2 butterflies from the same gold vellum paper, added small gems, cut and folded the triangular shapes at the left, glued some glitter card inside, and finished off with a large gem.
Old items used - white embroidered paper from stash, gold vellum from stash, gems.
