Shell Game

Thought I'd show you the shells I used in my stamping yesterday. When I went to take another look at the problem fabric, hoping it wasn't as bad as I thought (almost but not quite) and trying to envision ways to improve it (still a puzzlement), I rather liked the little still life composed of these items set on the counter to dry.

I erroneously thought the 5-petal design on the top of the sand dollar would print, but it actually is more a color change than a raised or otherwise delineated area. The flip side has fissures as well as a rough overall surface, so it printed quite nicely.

The toothbrush gives you an idea of the size of these shells. I used it to clean the paint from the depressions.
