Stampboard Charm

Hi everyone!! where's the sun gone!!! It's a wee bit windy here today and I think we will definately see some rain...good old Englsh weather..typical on the weekend.

This week I have made a charm from stampboard. My inspiratiion was the lovely piece Helen Chilton did over on the Paper Artsy blog this week. You can pop over and see it here.







I used 3 pieces of stampboard one inch square...I picked a few translucent colours from my freco paints..london bus, tango,yellow submarine,chatreuse and hey pesto. I layered them on until I was happy with the colour. Next I took the stamp ith the three beautiful ladies from LP006 and inked it up with black stazon. I laid the stampboard onto the stamp to ensure that I only got the part of the image I wanted.










 I scraped just a bit of the paint off to reveal the white underneath, and then used tiny screw eyes and rings to attach them all together and added some fibres to the top


 I had forgotton how much fun stampboard is to work with.



Thanks for stopping by...................................
