Stampbord - sweet!

Oh boy did I have fun playing with Ampersand Art's Stampbord for 2 Sketches 4 You this week!  This is such an awesome product that is so versatile that you can basically do anything on it with amazing results.  The absorbent, clay coated wood surface gives a clean, pristine image when you stamp or use rub-ons and the tools make carving and etching super easy and fun.  I am hooked on Stampbord AND you can even drill into the wood backing to create jewelry - wow!  The possibilities are endless...

For my clipboard project I used 4 pieces of Stampbord.  I hauled out my precious Copic Markers and created the glowing background.  Next I applied the rub-on butterflies and then etched into the Stampbord to create the white highlights.  The rest is pretty basic - a sentiment, bow and voila!  project complete.

I have not managed to play at Bitten by the Bug for a few weeks but the fabulous inspiration continues (without me *lol*).   This week the Designers all worked with the delicious Ice-Cream cone from the Indie Cart.  Yummy stuff ladies.  Hope to play along too next week :)

Crazy week ahead but all is good!
