I found this small cork board backed with chipboard in our local $ store. Straight away I imagined using it as a base for embossing flowers and stamping with ink for cards.
Rather than leave it plain a little pretty shabbying up was called for. Then it was ready for use whenever I am in need of a softer surface while I am stamping or embossing something
I also chose to make it double duty. The back was perfect for this quote that I have been wanting to use for a while. This way it can hang on the wall with the “used” side hidden when I am not using it. Saves space too in you are working in a small nook or cupboard.
I am sure that after a while of using it for stamping and rubbing or embossing shape into my hybrid digital flowers, that the other side will look decidedly more shabbier.
