Fossil Stone! One of my new favorite background techniques. And it is so simple to do (see the instructions on my posting dated 09/14/10) I used one of my favorite stamp sets, Inspired by Nature for both of these samples.
Stamp Sets: Inspired by Nature, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango for background, Black Stazon for flowers
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, glossy white
Accessories: two transparency sheets, Modern Label and Word Window punches, Dimensionals
This sample was truly "Inspired by Nature!" This summer we had beautiful Tall Coneflowers growing along our creek. They stood taller than me and attracted a whole array of butterflies. I enjoyed standing still among them watching the butterflies landing to feed. Sometimes, each flower would have 3 to 4 butterflies feeding at once.
