I love the cone flower stamp in Stampin Up's Inspired By Nature set. I wanted to play with a technique I saw on the Stamp N Design site here (love everything Lynn Pratt does).
I put a 1/2 inch grid on white CS. On this first card I stamped the cone flowers in black and then used a blending sponge to work in three shades of ink (crumb cake, Cajun craze and chocolate chip). Then I covered the whole piece with Versamark and clear embossing powder to create the tile effect.
I did the same 1/2 inch grid here and inked the cone flowers in black. I used a postcard background stamp and inked the edges in crumb cake ink. I used the same Versamark and clear embossing powder to create the tile effect.
