Faux linen technique used with Best Blossoms. I learned this technique from SCS and swapped with these at leadership and when I got home lo and behold, a "tutorial" on faux linen in the new Stampin' Success...guess they know where to go to their inspiration!!!
I used glossy white, sanded with sanding block then applied craft ink (from a reinker "puddle") using a damp sponge. The damper the sponge, the lighter the color. After it dries, I wiped it off with a clean damp sponge and that left a beautiful background which I overstamped with blossoms, leaves and etc. ala OSW method of stamping.
