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.

Yvonne - Pearls and lace in spring colours.  Details of how I made this tag on my blog.

Terry; I had fun altering a photoframe, I worked with Gesso, Light Modelling Paste and the Pearlescent Pans for the background, the butterflies are colored with the orange and green Pearlescent Pans and for the frame itself I played with the Roses stencil from Dutch Doobadoo. I covered everything with Iridescent Paste to finish my project for the inspirationweek.

Lou: I have used a scrap of card and a selection of Stampbord pieces to create my mini photoframe. The stampbord pieces were coloured with Pan Pastels and then over stamped, coloured, decoupaged etc etc. Check out my blog for more details and photos.
