Inspired by Nature on Tile with Alcohol Ink Background

I was in the Habitat for Humanity store yesterday looking to purchase recycled tiles to stamp on. As I was making my selection, a lady next to me cut her foot on the rusty edge of a sink laying on the floor.  My first aid training kicked in.
I stopped the bleeding, bandaged her up and sent her to the hospital for stitches and a tetanus shot.  Then I advised the cleaning staff how to clean the blood from the floor.
As a result, I got a large box of  4 1/4 by 4 1/4 tiles with some larger ones thrown in for just $2.00.

The tile shown here is 9 3/4 by 7 3/4".  Alcohol inks (Butterscotch, Meadow, and Raisin) were used to make the background.  Stamp set used:  Inspired by Nature and All in a Flutter.  I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out.
The tile was sealed with a clear acrylic spray, and felt feet applied.
