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!

    This is FABULOUS! I {heart} that medallion stamp and love all your little shabby touches this week! Great job using your smoochies too! I use my pastels a lot for coloring images because I'm a chicken with my markers most times! Pastels are more forgiving if you go outside the lines 🙂
