Robbyn is doing the Egyptians for a class project this term and her homework was to make an Egyptian game. We found one called Segou which is like our 0's and x's. So we made this.

I used card for the board and distressed it with a sanding block and then stamped on it with a crackle stamp using Walnut distress ink. The counters and images are all cut out with my Cammie. It took ages!!! I had to use white vinyl for the mummies as they were so intricate, they took a lot of weeding. The woman had to be cut out piece by piece too in different colours. I used Papermill card. Some of the pieces were tiny!! I then inked the edges and lightly went over them with the walnut ink.

Let's hope her teacher appreciates it!!



  1. Wonderful Shary. I bet it did take ages too! Michelle x

  2. Very creative Shary and a great way of learning. I bet the teacher will be very impressed
