Woodware Challenge - Background Effects

Its fun, fast and it could get addictive!
The Magic Foam blocks are essential to every girls craft box.
The blocks are mouldable when heated with a heat tool. Just press the heated surface onto any object for about 20 seconds and hey presto, you have your very
own personalised stamp!
You can use a number of everyday objects to create your backgrounds....buttons, beads, leaves, soles of shoes, rubber bands, bubble wrap...the list goes on.
If you don't like what you've created, then just heat and do it again.
If you like what you've created, keep it forever.
But believe will need more than one block, I cut mine up to make circles, small squares and other fancy shapes, great for making a border.
Ink up your moulded block with pigment of die ink pads and get stamping.
Try inking with dye inks and spritz with water before you stamp for a water colour effect.

For my sample I used some old lace and two shades of pink ink pads.
