Put your hand up if you've got any Stampboard pieces buried deep in your stash. Put your other hand up if you've never ever used it. Me too. I found a small box full of one-inch square pieces, so I relocated them from the stash to my desk, and there they sat for weeks, waiting for inspiration.
So today I thought I'd swipe some Distress Inks over them, then I went looking for a suitable stamp and found this butterfly. Stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black, and when it was all dry, I scratched some detail into it. In case you're not familiar with Stampboard, it's MDF-type blocks covered with a clay coating, which absorbs ink, then you scratch the coloured surface to reveal white uncoloured clay underneath.
