The octopus image is made using a die and white Inksheet! The Inksheets act like a resist on your substrate and allow you to use thin dies like stamps! Instructions following…
I also discovered you can use stencils with the Inksheets. On these pages I used the Bare Branches stencil and a gold Inksheet to impress the branches onto the page (plus it acts as a resist!)
I've added bits of "ephemera" into the journal, like the author clipped in letters, sketches, maps and specimens.
The supplies I used for this project can be found at Sizzix or Simon Says Stamp. Follow the links below and a shopping you may go. ;-) Some links are affiliate links and there will be no additional cost to you but they help support my art endeavor. Thanks!
