Some of you may have seen this on the Scrap That! or Ideas for Scrapbookers blog, but I thought I would archive some of my favorite and EASY ways to finish chipboard here on my blog. (BTW - Halloween and Christmas Dusty Attic chipboard has been ordered and is on its way to me soon. It will all be available in my Etsy Shop mid October :)
On the shells, I first applied snow writer by Deco Art with my finger for texture, and then added some soft pink and brown chalk ink around the edges.
Here I used Tim Holtz crackle paint and light brown chalk ink on the edges for definition.
Simply pink acrylic paint on the dress form - so easy!
I stained the clock with walnut ink for a vintage look. Gets really dark in the cracks - so awesome!
A little Tim Holtz distress ink and gold Stickles on this flourish. I prefer to ink chipboard than paint it - faster and less messy.
This rustic look is simply Tim Holtz distress ink applied GENTLY, directly from the ink pad and leaving some spots bare (do not prime the chipboard).
Here is Glimmer Mist at it's best - saturated and shimmery.
Here is more Glimmer Mist in a dark gold and then bronze Stickles over top on the edges.
Two more great ways to finish chipboard are glazing for an epoxy look and stamping on painted chipboard - can't wait to try these techniques out too so stay tuned for those pics!
