- A2 size cardstock. I used Prism cardstock.
- Flourish stamp is Magenta
- Sentiment is unknown
- Stampbord in two sizes: domino and 1.25 x2.5
- Scratch knife by Stampbord
- VersaMagic Inks: Tea Leaves, Spanish Olive, Key Lime, Spring Pansy & Purple Hydrangea
The first thing I did was line up the Stampbord the way I wanted it. I kept the pieces next to each other when I did the background on the Stampbord. I started with the purple center and used the Spring Pansy and then a little Purple Hydrangea on top applying the ink directly from the ink pad, not totally covering it, but just highlighting. Then the greens: first the Tea Leaves fairly heavy and making sure to blend just a bit with the purples. A little Spanish Olive on top of that and then a tiny bit of Key Lime for highlights. I let that dry for a few minutes. I then put the pieces back together, side by side, and stamped the flourish with black Brilliance ink.
After all that ink dried for about 10 minutes, I applied some MicroGlaze sparingly on each piece. This not only seals the inks, but gives the finish a nice shine. I applied the MicroGlaze with a paper towel. I should've used a soft cloth, only because I think it would've polished the Stampbord surface to a much higher gloss. I rubbed a bit harder around the edges of each piece of Stampbord to give it a slightly worn look.
When I finished the scratching, I used adhesive to mount the Stampbord to my cardstock. I stamped the sentiment and I was done!
