The subject for the third week of techniques was Stampbord - I worked with the domino sized pieces I had so adapted the exercises to suit.
The first example can be used to make a Christmas Badge (in which case it needs a pin attaching to the back) or as a sentiment on a card or tag. I did not have a sufficient number of tiny gems for the berries so improvised by using a combination of Glossy Accents & Stickles Glitter Glue. The edges were sanded & then the sides coloured with a Sakura Stardust Pen (the dimension of the berries & sparkle of the sides becomes more apparent by clicking the photo to enlarge).

With the second example I have used the scratcing tool to etch away the areas inside the wings of the stamped image. This time I went round the edges & the sides with a Sakura Stardust Pen.
