Nature was never really a theme I indulged in but it’s one I am becoming more comfortable with especially as I now have so many beautiful nature stamps including a lovely set of stamps I received from Darkroom Door to play with, Darkroom Door Gum Trees. It’s certainly long overdue that I share a Darkroom Door sample with you.
On this card, although I did not stamp any snowflakes or winter related imagery, I wanted to convey a wintry day, with the sense of snowflakes blowing through the wind and a low winter sun casting a golden glow.You might just be able to make out the white splatters which brought to mind a snowstorm.Initially I planned on tearing up this panel, to re-ink the stamp and stamp onto a different surface as the ink has almost pooled, even though I did work with Staz-on. After a few days I happened to return to the panel and decided that I would go with the flow. I remember feeling the same way about a post I shared in December which also featured stamping onto mop-up paper.I am always happiest when I can putter around with little pieces of this and that, finding a home for them on whatever it is that I am working on. There is something therapeutic in this.
