I'm having a lot of fun playing with Stampbord. This is a scan of my first few attempts. The etching part is easy, it's just a matter of etching the right areas. I haven't perfected that yet! My next project is to use the Floral background stamp - it will look fabulous on stampbord I think.

Thanks for your comments!:-D
Stampbord comes in different sizes and look like wooden tiles. They have a layer of clay on the surface which is really really smooth and when stamped on it produces a really crisp image. You can use any sort of ink on it and it soaks right in. Then you can scrape off the ink in places to reveal the original white clay base for highlights. You can learn more about it here: http://stampbord.com/
(I'm not afiliated in any way with this product, hopefully it's okay to post the link)
I think I will make magnets out of the two larger pieces and put a pin back on the smallest square (it's one inch) to turn it into a brooch.
