Here's the inspiration for the first sample I created. These are Rustic Black Hills flagstones and now create a winding path through our newly overhauled backyard of all hardscape materials.
And here are the 4 samples I created in a manner of minutes.
1 - Tree Branch ink/powder; Potting Soil, Tiger Lily, Watering Can inks
2 - Orange Blossom ink/powder; Tree Branch, Watering Can inks
3 - Buttercup ink/powder; Leaf Green, Fern Green, Tree Branch inks
4 - Pink Peony ink/powder; Tea Rose, Hydrangea inks
Stop whatever you're doing and go try this technique out NOW!
And guess what? Overheating the piece created additional visual appeal (for me).
