Rose who said... I would love to see demo's and samples using Stampbord
In case you haven't encountered Stampbord before it's VERY hard MDF with a superior ceramic coating which is perfect for taking inks, you can heat set and emboss and I'm told you can make holes in it with a cropadile but as I don't have one, I'll have to take their word for that LOL.
I used Distress inks on the Stampbord and then Memento Tuxedo black for the Andy Skinner broken heart. When it was dry I scratched highlights in the Stampbord and used a black Copic around the edge of the pieces. I added the text sometimes because hearts do get broken 'Sometimes'.
The background, I drew the design on the card to resemble cracks in a broken window and stamped the Gothic text over this, I layered the fabric over because I liked the way the design showed through from behind. Then placed the Stampbord as if the heart was breaking and falling away.
More examples of stampbord over at the Craft Barn Blog
