Made this by holding a piece of glossy white cardstock over a candles' flame. The soot from the candle (use a cheap candle to get a sootier flame!) blackens the glossy card stock and you can experiment with the pattern that you get. When you've got the amount of soot that you want, you stamp onto the the soot with a clean dry stamp. You then spray with Krylon sealant to hold the image.

It almost looks like a woodland scene with the light coming through the trees (done in sepia). I think I need to revisit this technique sometime.
