Hi everyone Sylvia here with an idea for using those small stampbord tiles you get in a mixed pack. This is my first attempt at using the stampbord and I love it. The inks took well, it was easy to emboss my stamped image and I had fun gently scraping away the colour to lighten areas of the stamping.
These two tiles were coloured with Oak House Studio acrylic inks by Colour Chemistry. A dabbing technique using a blending tool was used on the ATC dragon stamp tile and the dragon was heat embssed with clear embossing powder. colour was just dropped onto the fireworks set stamp tile using a pipette this image was not heat embossed and I used a scraping tool to remove some colour. I punched a hole in this tile and intend making a key ring with it, the dragon will be mounted in a frame when I can find my specialist oriental papers I have (put away safe!) somewhere.
My third attempt was coloured and stamped over three oblong tiles, I fastened them together with masking tape on the reverse before colouring. I used Pure Colour Chemistry inks for this project in Paris pink and French mint and the triple butterfly set for stamping. When finished they were mounted onto a square of card coloured some time ago with totally turquoise and a flick of French mint inks and placed it in a frame.
I hope you have been inspired to try some stampbord colouring and stamping. My efforts are not perfect but I enjoyed making these little pieces of art and was very pleased with the results.
