Faux Fossil ATCs with Deco Art Media

I have been playing with DecoArt Media products and boy are they fun! I wanted to experiment with faux effects and this idea fit the bill:

I started out with a layer of Texture Sand Paste on matboard. When it was dry, I used Black Modeling Paste through the Mini Trilobites stencil to form the "fossil". Afterwards, I used washes of the Fluid Acrylic Paints (I LOVE these paints!!) to achieve the mottled color of stone. I'm really happy with the performance of these products and look forward to making many more artistic creations with them!
