Playing with stampbord

Good morning folks, its inspiration week at Love2Create with Premium Craft Brands and as always we've got a nice easy theme for you. Its anything creative/mixed media goes and our lucky winner will receive some gorgeous goodies from Premium Craft Brands so you don't want to miss out on your chance to win!!

For my DT project, i've been playing with stampbord and made a bag charm and a keyring.

To make the butterfly bag charm I coloured a stampbord domino with PanPastels in shades of turquoise, phthalo blue, phalo green and then stamped the butterfly from the Premium Craft Brands Postcard stamp set using black archival ink. I used my stampbord tools to scratch highlights into the butterfly and then dusted over a little turquoise PanPastel. I punched a hole with my cropodile and then triple embossed the stampbord with clear UTEE. I applied a layer of maimeri glassy gel around the edges to adhere some clear microbeads although they dont show up too well in the photo.

The key ring was made with a Stampbord square, I stamped the flowers from 'Roses' Premium Craft Brands stamp set and watercoloured with my PanPastels. I added some Coarse White Pearl Medium in Black and again used my tools to scratch some highlights. I used glassy gel again to adhere red microbeads around the edge.

I'm entering these in the following challenges:
Crafting from the heart: anything goes
Dream Valley: things with wings
Not just cards: anything goes
