Stampbord Fridge Magnet

Here is my fridge magnet piece made out of Stampbord. The swap was organised by a member of UK Stampers Forum. I already had a selection of oval pieces and this one is relatively small (2.5 x 1.5 inches).

The background was coloured with Nick Bantock inks from Ranger ( Prussian Blue & Deep Turquoise) applied with a piece of cut'n'dry foam and set with the heat gun. The text stamp (Paper Artsy) was inked with Prussian blue and stamped onto the background. The wildflower stamp and the butterfly stamp were both from Crafty Individuals (wildflower plate). The flower was inked with Brilliance pearlescent ivy ink on its stem and pearlescent lilac on the flower. The butterfly was inked with Memories India Ink. When dry the stampbord was scratched through to reveal the white base as shown on the flower and the butterflies. The edge of the stampbord was coated with Versamark and gold Embossing Powder added and heated until melted to finish.

That's it, fairly straightforward, but I am pleased with the result.
Hope the receiver likes it :-)
