Soot can be Beautiful

How do I explain my absence? I've been in the laundry room actually doing laundry -- LOL. This black and white card is from my technique archives when I was in the early stages of experimentation. The film strip background was perfect to showcase the images from the "black and white" era. Most of you probably won't recognize any of these "funny faces."

The technique is to lay enough soot on a piece of glossy card stock to make a "film" to stamp the image into. Gina K recently produced a tutorial with great detailing of this technique. Soot can be beautiful -- and Gina K can show you how!!

I've lost track of the stamp maker info for these -- they are on plastic pegs. If anyone recognizes them, please let me know. Either way, please take time to leave a comment so I know you were here -- and many thanks for your visit!
