Stampbord and Impression Obsession: Neil

A completely different use of the Stampbord and Impression Obsession stamps today with Neil and a very masculine mini album. He used the Impression Obsession to stamp the whole cover and the domino size Stampbord as embellishments. 
Hope you like it ;)

I started out with two chipboard covers and painted them silver before using the Impression Obsession Ornate Floral stamp over the covers in black. I marked out on the back the placement for the 3 Stampbord dominoes and cut the apertures. I've used die cut tattered lace around the edges which is coloured black. The whole cover has been covered with clear UTEE.
The inside page is black card onto which I've mounted the dominoes so they fit the apertures when closed.

The Stampbord dominoes were coloured black and the Leigh Hannan image stamped in silver. A bit of extra detail was scratched into the surface and then everything sealed with a layer of embossing powder. The detail is not very clear in the photo but it looks lovely in reality!

To make the medallion I laid a curtain ring onto the stamp and poured melted UTEE from a melt pot into it. When it cools it is easy to remove from the ring and you have a lovely impression. It was coloured with metallic powders and added to the book in line with the design.

To make his sample, Neil used:
