I was experimenting with the reverse masking technique. I drew the gold box with a versamark pen and then embossed in gold. After creating a reverse mask, I stamped the flowers with white craft ink (had to mask the flowers as well). I colored over the craft ink with prismacolor pencils and then masked all the flowers to stamp the french script background with versamark. It is hard to see in the photo but I sponged over cheesecloth to give the pale plum and sage shadow a bit of texture. I wish I had the lace or cheese cloth background stamp. It would have been much easier.
Let me know what you think.
