Board book challenge on Art Buzz

I have finally finished the first spread in an altered board book challenge on Trish's Art Buzz blog . The instuctions for each spread are on the blog and also on the Next Generation Stampers group . I have shown the pages at each of the three stages.

Distressed shrink plastic

Had a play with distressing some shrink plastic as suggested by Jessie on one of my groups. I cut and punched the shrink plastic, heated it then stamped while still soft. I edged them in Krylon. One of them was a stack of the offcuts heated and then stamped and edged.

I have finished two canvases that have been half finished for ages. They are now hanging on the wall.

A small wall hanging using two inch square pieces of stampboard. Stamp by Invoke Arts

A 2x1 inch piece of stampboard decorated with alcohol inks and an Invoke arts stamp. I will attach a brooch back to this one.

I have had some stampboard for a while but never used it. I set up a swap using stampboard so I've just made a couple of things using it. I coloured each piece using either alcohol inks or dye inks and then stamped in black. I then scraped away lines to put white highlights onto them
