Background #1: Judi Kins Diamond Glaze was spread onto an acrylic panel and drops of Marvy Marker dyes were spilled onto the surface. A piece of white cardstock was pressed against this, resulting in splotches of color with striation marks in them, and leaving blank white spaces also. The white spaces were colored in with a Versamark pen and brushed with metallic powders. The edges of the cardstock were torn and treated with metallic powders in the same manner. A second background was created by triple embossing cardstock with Pharaoh's Gold powder and letting dry. The "Marabou" petroglyphs 30-005, 30-006 were stamped on what was the white cardstock background using a Versamark pad, and were dusted with metallic powders. The same stamps were inked with permanent ink and stamped slightly to the right of the metallic images. This piece was mounted onto the gold background and both were pasted onto dark eggplant cardstock. This was mounted again onto the same color cardstock across which has been stamped the "Ethiopian Text" 30-115.

Artist Bio
I came to rubber stamping via a long route of interest in other arts/crafts: I started out as a weaver, culminating in juried shows in Boston's City Hall and various galleries, then was led (by the poor quality of mill-dyed yarns) to hand-spinning my own yarns, then to felting, then to paper-making, and finally to rubberstamping, and to my latest love, bone-carving. When the bone is polished to a smooth shiny surface, I use images from rubber stamps to carve outlines into the bone, and then I fill the image with polymer clay inlays. I am also interested in investigating the possibilities of altered books. I teach classes at Luna's Memories, a scrapbooking/rubber stamping store in my home town of Half Moon Bay, CA
