We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Don't forget to play!

My Pebeo paints haven't had an outing for a little while, so, with a friend, we recently had a play.  We tried it on some Stampboard with a view to stamping on top.

Used mainly Moon with a touch of Prisme on these pieces of Stampboard.

Several attempts made to stamp onto it, as it is very slippery, but at least all the fuzzy attempts could be wiped off immediately!

Used Archival ink and heat set it.

I decided to make a card for an upcoming birthday. I used a background piece from the masterboards created earlier this year (see here), and die-cut some leaves similar the the stamped ones.

During our Pebeo session we made a lot more pieces, so I'll show those another time.

This card is appropriate for the current Craft Barn fortnightly random challenge, which is about background circles, and this month's Craft Stamper Magazine challenge which is Anything Goes (as long as it features some stamping).

If you never did, you should.
These things are fun, and fun is good!
Dr Seuss


  1. The design comes together beautifully with the die cut leaves echoing your stamped ones. The colour scheme is very subtle too giving an elegant feel to the card.

  2. Patience paid off, the result is beautiful.
