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!
