First Stampbord.

I mentioned in my last blog post that one of my good blogging friends, Vicky, sent me some stampbord.

Well, it took me all day Sunday to find the courage to use it. I was afraid I would 'mess' it up.To my surprise and delight it was fun and easy to use!
It`s only my first attempt, so don't be too hard on me! LOL!

It's the first time I have used this adorable owl/girl image. I bought it cheap on ebay.
I stamped it in Versafine black. Distress Stains in Faded Jeans,Wild Honey,Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain were used.

The bird is from a small bird stamp set from Typo.

I had originally masked a circle for the moon....but had a mishap. So I have just punched a small white circle for the moon instead. I applied some Iridescent Medium over the moon to give it a 'silvery' shimmer. Hard to see in the photo.

White gelly pen used to create some stars.


  1. I'm so happy you plucked up the courage to use the Stampbord(I was the same the first time I played with one LOL) & it looks amazing!

  2. Oh wow Shirl... this looks amazing... LOVE the owl/girl stamp... how gorgeous... and of course the bird - I have that wonderful little Typo set too... really lovely with the starry background...
