Stampbord project number 2

Here is my second Stampbord project. I first sponged on Distress inks in Milled Lavender, Broken China, and Peeled Paint, working light to dark from the center out. Then I stamped this image from Stampendous in Stazon black. I used the scratch tool from the Stampbord tool kit to scratch out fine lines, highlights, and some of the dots on the image. I thought it needed a little sparkle so I filled in some of the scratch lines with the Sakura Stardust pen. I finished the Stampbord by coating it with Crystal Effects, letting it run off the edge and wiping off the excess before it dried. I wish I knew all of the patterned paper, but it's scraps...I save everything! The darker purple cardstock is a really pretty metallic and the card base is from Bazzill, but that's the only one I know for sure! The ribbon and sentiment are from Michaels and the hardware from SU! Hodgepodge Hardware. I trimmed the green pp with large scallopped scissors and sponged the edges with Versa Mark Tea Leaves. The dot/stripe paper is sponged on the edges with VM Purple Hydrangea. I added white dots around the scallop circle with a white jelly roll pen. After I glued down the Stampbord onto the circle I thought I should have made it a magnet too like the last one...but it gets really heavy. Who knows, I might change my mind!

Here's a close up view...can you see the sparkle? A little bit...click on the picture to see it even closer!

Glad to be back! I have so much to catch up on...blog posts, SCS posts, new releases! Did you see the new Papertrey Ink stamps? The projects are so cute! I am heading over there to place an order today!
