Postcard: Green Icon

I’d been looking at a cool book that has information on how to make polymer clay tile mosaics, and the artist used a lot of religious icons contained within frames. My friend Jane and I were in awe of how beautiful they were, so I started looking for tiny icon images I could use to duplicate the effect. I used these from a catalog that was selling a lot of Christmas cards. They’re tiny, just the right size for this.

The stamp has the eye inside the onion-shaped arch, so I stamped it on green paper, embossed it in gold, and then cut out the inside. No reason why I shouldn’t reuse it on the backside. There’s still plenty of room for a stamp.
