Emerging from darkness into light seemed an appropriate title given It reflected how I was feeling at the time. This lesson with Jessica Swift involved creating a shaded background, hand carving your own stamps and then stamping onto the background.
Using silver ink I stamped the feathers and bubbles over the dark area of the background and the plants and flowers were stamped in black over the lighter part of background. Each of the stamps was hand-carved by me.
I then drew a pecked border around to frame.
