I made this piece today for the Exotic Places challenge at Wednesday Stamper. I created the background with joint compound (drywall mud) and a stamp from Jim Stephan. His stamps will always have a special place in my heart - they were the first unmounted stamps I ever bought. I still remember having to call him to order them. Back then (8 years ago??) a lot of companies didn't have web sites. I found his ad in the back of Somerset Studio.....fond memories. :-)
I photographed my steps when making this - I will probably post a tutorial later tonight if anyone is interested. If you've never tried it, it's a really fun technique!
Oh, and thanks to Michelle for reminding me - this is a picture of a Temple in Nepal, somewhere I've always wanted to go!
