Square in Square

This is my entry for this weeks Wednesday Stamper blog challenge whose subject is 'It's Hip to be Square'.  I used a couple of polymer stamps from Inkadinkado kindly given to me by Godelieve as part of a fab prize of goodies when she celebrated her 1,000,000th hit on her blog..........now that's some going !

I started with a 2in square of Stampbord and stamped this in Versafine onyx black ink with the stamp.  I then used barn door & rusty hinge Distress inks to colour the edges and centre of the tile with cut'n'dry foam and a waterbrush.  Some parts of the image were coloured with Inktense pencils and a waterbrush.  I used a scratch tool to etch into the stampbord clay surface on the images and around the edge.  I then used some more barn door Distress ink around the edge and heat embossed this with detail clear embossing powder. I edged with dark brown chalk ink.

The background mat was made using Sticky fingers Summer spray inks onto white card and when dry followed by various colours of chalk inks applied through a bit of sequin waste. This was cut and matted onto a piece of maroon card.  Both mats were edged again with dark brown chalk ink.

The Stampbord tile was then applied centrally with glossy accents and the word Serenity stamped top right in Versafine onyx black ink to finish.
