Happy Mother's Day! Happy Spring!

Here's a little something I made last night with Spring and Mother's Day in mind... Happy Mother's Day to all the moms who read my blog... and Happy Spring to the rest of you!

Lori D inspired me to get out my stampbord and play! Check out her gorgeous mini book featuring Color in Black & White stamps on the Stampbord covers!

Also, be sure to check out Tricia Morris's Stampbord Mini Album Webisode on!

Stampbord Believe Pin by Neith

To create my pins, first I began applying the paler inks onto the Stampbord after pressing the ink pad cover onto the pad, then the Stampbord onto the damp pad... The first layer was pink with an all-over application, then I began applying additional inks with a more random approach and smoothed the ink with a piece of Cut 'n' Dry Foam. Then I stamped the dragonflies with Archival Ink and began etching out areas where I wanted white to show through. On the Believe Pin, I also inked the edges then applied the silver leafing pen to the sides and overran it a little onto the front edges.

I haven't yet decided how to complete the bottom one :) I definitely want to cover the side edges, but not sure if I want to ink the front edges or add a work or whirls, or nothing!

Beautiful work Neith. I bought a bunch of that stampboard stuff without a clue as to what I was going to do with it. Thanks for the inspiration!
