This is my first post and try at stamping on tile. I love the way it turned out. I stamped with Staz-on in Timber brown then colored in with Sharpies. Mask that image and then stamped french script over the tile. Beaded pen and post-it note holder.

Very pretty set. Your tile is gorgeous! I'll have to try stamping in Timber Brown instead of black if this is the kind of effect one can get. And welcome to the wonderful world of sharing your creations on SCS. Keep them coming! Linda

I love it! How did you get that beautiful color on the hydrangea tile? Everytime I use Sharpies on tiles they come out very dark, and I really love the lightness of the purple on the hydrangea. Same with the beautiful green, Please share your secret!
Thanks all !! I stamped the hydrangea in Timber brown and used the pale colors of sharpies, pale purple and barely colored it. For the green on the leaves I used the olive one out of the new color set. These colors are beautiful. Marigold, Burgundy, Plum, Olive and Navy. I purchased them at Wal-Mart. For the French Script I stamped the ink first on scrap paper and then stamped on the tile so it wasn't so dark. I'll post more. Michelle
