If you have Tim's book, enameled stamping can be found on page 44. As Linda said, easy peasy, and makes for a beautiful background. I started with two sample backgrounds, just to practice and check out different stamps and colors, though I didn't use either in my finished piece.
I ultimately decided I was definitely ready for fall, so did my background using autumnal colors and Tim's wood stamp.
Here are some details.
The leaves (Tim's mini tattered leaves) were cut from some unused paper from an older project, inked and then the two in the foreground were covered with glossy accents.
The bird (another of Tim's minis) was covered with music paper; his crown with dictionary paper which was inked and covered with rock candy crackle paint.
Mr. Bird is perched on a branch (part of Tim's branch tree die) enhanced with some rusty barbed wire. Yep, you heard right. For those who wondered why I'd want barbed wire and what I'd do with it, now you know. (Big thanks to Gloria and Julie who both have sent me the wire, and I have no idea whose was used here).
