I believe we love chipboard......... and we do have stash of them at home.
Today i want to share 1 way to customize your chipboard - the shabby chic style.
Here is what you need:
1) a chipboard piece (here I use a tree)
2) White paint
3) Paint brush
4) Distress ink (Walnut colour) + sponge
5) Word stamps (here I use a MM magnetic mini word stamps)
Tip: Because we want to use just a little bit, tap your brush (with paint) onto tissue or a piece of paper. We dont want blops of paint... but very little dots of it on our chipboard.
Now, using up and down movement, dab onto your chipboard.
Try not to use 'brushing' strokes... we want specks of paints... not stripes/paint lines.
See, you get little specks on the chipboard. Build up little by little till you like it.
Next, ink the sides and edges with distress ink. This will give it some definition. Brush it lightly and build from there.
Lastly, stamp the trunk of the tree with word stamps. Whatever words you like.
And to give it a finished look - tie a ribbon with a metal charm.
And I use this on the LO here:
