Well done ladies, gorgeous projects!! Don't forget to grab your Top 3 badges for your blogs.

Its time to check out the inspiration from the design team, some of the girls have been playing with Stampbord which works beautifully with PanPastels as well as inks: 

Stampbord™ is an incredible art and craft surface; developed by Ampersand Art Supply that allows clean, perfect rubber stamp impressions every time. The surface is correctable and erasable, great for jewellery, custom boxes, magnets, altered books, ornaments, embellishments, scrapbooking & more!
Stampbord’s ultra-smooth clay finish, accepts all types of stamping inks including dye based, alcohol and pigmented. The absorbency of the clay surface lets you apply colour without smearing, and no matter how saturated the surface becomes, the material will never buckle.


Anjie - I've used a cheap canvas and some Stampbord to alter for my project. More details can be found on my blog.

Claire C I've been playing with stampbord too, love love love this stuff its amazing!!

Here are the links to the goodies I've used

Terry, I have altered a box, worked with Gesso, Light Modelling Paste, lots of Purple PanPastel and White Coarse, the background was made with the DD stencil and to top everything I played with the Iridescent Paste to give it a nice shimmer.

 Tracy ~ Last week I shared the outside of my metal box so today I want to show you the inside.
With a little Matt Gel to mix with Pan Pastels to create a wet paint, she was easy to colour, adding dry pan pastels over the top.
Find out more on my blog here if you have a moment.

Yvonne - I've taken another opportunity to alter my Dictionary this time using all Pearlescent Panpastels - pink, blue, yellow and green.

Lou: I have also used stampbord with my pan pastels and of course, the brilliant PCB stamp sets, Postcard and Roses to alter a tissue box. Lots of photos and more details are on my blog.
