Chess Board


I saw these stamps on Ebay but was outbid at the last moment. It wasn't you was it? Lol! Anyway, once I'd seen them I had to have them. As you do! My trusty friend Mr Google located them for me and this is my first play with them. It's a magnetic notice board that I alcohol inked. For some reason when I stamped the chess squares, the ink lifted the alcohol ink. No matter; quite like the effect. The larger chess pieces are fimo and the smaller ones are shrink plastic. All the chess pieces have magnets attached so all the pieces can be rearranged.
