I love the Giant Mushroom stamp (Stampotique) and don't use nearly enough. But I love how it looks against the green background - must be my Pacific NW self envisioning hikes through the Hoh Rainforest in Olympic National Park. :) In the following pics you can (hopefully) see the texture created by applying the gesso through the stencil.
This one is a little more subtle.

Thanks for taking a peek!
