Still on my Italian theme.
This is my contribution to Tag Tuesday to use embossing powder. I wanted a bronze background and to use the embossing powder to represent the patina bronze sculptures are given or obtain over time. The embossing powder is Madonna Robe from the Stampman, which is a two tone powder. I put it over Stream ink from Adirondack. As the powder is quite light I needed to put it over a strong blue ink otherwise it did not give a strong enough image. I coloured around the image to emphasis the light direction and highlighted the face where the high spots would be.
