I have fallen in love with this gorgeous stamp by Rachel Greig of Darkroom door . I have stamped it twice to create this rich background in archival teal ink. The flower has been created by painting a piece of card with claudine helmuth teal and then white paint and then dry embossed the stencil and sanded the raised areas. The petals were then cut out to add dimension. Thanks for looking.

Beautiful, Cathy! I'd like to see your silhouette grasses series here, too, with maybe a little explanation of how you did the backgrounds? Did you mask them as you went?
