The Shabby Tea Room Challenge 9

This weeks challenge: “Chipboard challenge” – use chipboard on a card or project.  Well the new smooch spritz makes covering chipboard easy peasy!

We made a version of this card at my friend Bridget’s workshop this weekend.  we tried the technique Poppin’ Pastels!  Every time I bring out my chalks I wonder why I don’t use them more!  

So here’s how its done:  Stamp the medallion image in versamark ink.  the using your sponge daubers apply the chalk in a circular motion to add the color to the image.  it should pop right away!  

my chalk colors are chocolate chip & rose red.

I used the Smooch spritz in log cabin to color my chipboard letters.  then I smooched spritzed the whole card in Vanilla Shimmer to give it a whole lot more sparkle.  you can see it in the 1st picture.  

I lightly sponged the kraft cord button in soft suede and distressed and sponged the edges,    So Pretty in real life!!!

I think this is a close to “shabby” as I’ll ever be….have you seen some of the very cool shabby chic cards at the Shabby Tea Room??  Come and play!

Paper Soft suede, rose red, Naturals white cardstock

The Shabby Tea Room Challenge 6 meets SMOOCH

Here is a Sneak Peek  at the New Smooch spritz Stampin Up! is offering in the new Summer Mini.  I have never used these before now all I can say– WOW they take covering chipboard to a whole new level!!

Take a closer look at the pictures– My son REALLY likes chocolate milk and he likes it really chocolate-y.  So he skipped the spoon and poured.  I’m not sure how I got this shot- I was in the kitchen just playing with the camera.  He soon realized I was taking his picture.   Hmmm,  How much chocolate is too much???

And The Shabby Tea Room inspiration:

Here is a close up of how just a few spritz sprays cover chip board.  WOW

I also sprayed it right on the card stock.  My son constantly spills the Nesquick powder on the kitchen counter so I thought that it looked similar.  Sparkle texture…LOVE IT!!

On a side note, make sure you get the New Color Catcher.  This Smooch stuff sprays all over!  The color catcher is perfect for chipboard and cards, if you are spraying your 12×12 pages you will need to have a big box or go outside.  I made a bit of a mess!
