CBC5- Chrissy's Belli Challenge - CHIPBOARD!

This Weeks Belli Challenge is CHIPBOARD!

Whenever I go into a scrapbook store or look through my Stampin' Up! catalog I go to the chipboard! I LOVE chipboard and have a storage container filled and over flowing from it. It is also something I forget to use at times....

My Wedding card sample

Stamp Sets: Floral, To Have & to Hold
CS & Ink: Purely Pomegranite, Going Gray, Shimmery White, Rose Red, Black Staz On, Veramark

Accessories: Hologram highlights EP, heat Tool, Gray taffeta ribbon, Paper Snips, Ticket Corner punch, brayer, Vintage Brads - CHIPBOARD from On Board Accents, Corner rounder to make scallops

I painted this with Rose Red Craft ink then embossed Hologram Highlights over it and stamped the image on Shimmery White Cs and cut it out and used red sticky tape to attach it!

Chipboard tips -
1. You can paint it with any All Purpose craft paint or Making Memories Scrapbooking Paints (Love those)
2. Ink it up with Craft ink.
3. I have even used Sharpie markers or a Pigment based marker like fabrico works great too, to get in the tiny grooves.
4. Use your cropodile and add some BLING to it.
5. Use it as a wall decoration or in a picture frame.
6. Scrapbook it.
7. Use your Rub Ons.
8. Stamp in it.
9. Layer cardstock on it like I did here...
8. Got anymore ideas? Share them here! :)
The Daisy Card:
Stamp Sets: Daisy Jar from Cornish Ceritage Farms, Rough Edges Wheel, My Friend stamp by Kolette Hall (copyright is hers too on that stamp)
Cardstock & Ink: Copic Markers, Afternoon Tea DP, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Groovy Guava, Adirondack Espresso Ink,
Accessories: CHIPBOARD - Blossoms & Basics, Groovy guava Classic Ink - then sanded with a Sanding Block to give it a leathery look. Dimensionals, Wild Wasabi Double Stitched Ribbon, Vintage Brads
