Hello and thanks for stopping by today! Looking at a large stamp, often times there is just one part of the whole that I’d like to use in a project. Subtracting an image from a large stamp can lead to a beautiful result. Here is one example of cutting a portion away from the image for a new image.

Subtracting an image from a large stamp
Blossoming Basket stamp set is a beautifully drawn image but it is a large stamp. I do really like the flowers that are in the basket and would like to use them in a project. I resolved to use the flowers alone by subtracting an image from a larger stamp.
Stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder onto watercolor paper, I added color to only the portion of the image that I want to use. After dry, I fussy cut the flowers and leaves and arranged them in a cluster. Having these flowers featured, without the basket, is exactly how I imagined these flowers would look and I’m really liking the result!
