Stampbord again!!

I'm besotted with Stampbord, it's so quick and easy to use and the results are so effective.

The old Clarity collage stamps are amongst my favourites - oldies but goodies!

I've taken a few photos along the way but this card was so simple it really is very self explanatory, I'll post them below.

The mats and layers really finish off a piece if co-ordinated well.

Have a lovely week everyone xxx

Stampbord and Panpastel Necklace

I absolutely love Stampbord, it has such a smooth, and forgiving, surface.  I decided to use it for this weeks inspiration over on the Love2create challenge blog.

Firstly I cover the base in yellow and added Magenta and blue in opposite corners, as you can see this resulted in a lovely green shade in the bottom corner.  Then, using Versamark, I inked up the Clarity Paris collage stamp (still one of my favourites after all these years).  I then put the Stampbord on top of the stamp roughly where I thought would show an effective part of the image.  I couldn't have been more delighted when I saw that the word "destination" was perfectly placed at the bottom, a very happy accident!

I punched a whole and added a couple of of dangly trinkets and I had a lovely pendant, which of course could also be a key ring, bag charm etc.

Thank you for popping in today xxxx
