A week or so ago on the Facebook Chat page Jane asked
Do some of you paint it/ colour it in some way and if so how?”
so today I want to share with you six ways I change
the appearance of my chipboard to suit my layouts or cards.
Let’s start with this one
The white paint
certainly makes a difference to the finished look.
You could, of course, use any coloured paint under the Frosted Sugar Powder or glitter for a completely different look.
This time I have given the chipboard a coat of black acrylic paint
to stamp on top of the black paint.
If you liked you could add a coat of Glossy Accents
or similar to give a high gloss finish to this technique.
I love this technique for words and titles, it gives a high gloss domed look and
looks fantastic on top of metallic paints too.
I used my Versamark Ink pad
and white embossing powder
to colour this piece. I actually gave it two coats of embossing powder so I got that nice smooth finish to the piece.
Once again this could be done in any colour.
Very fast and simple to do.
I applied a coat of Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo, let that dry and then laid a sheet of
in Gold on top of it and rolled over it with my brayer.
The foil did not stick to the whole surface but it has a very grunge modern look to it.
It has a beautiful shimmer in real life
You could also add a layer of stamping between these two layers for added interest.
So there we have 6 way you could personalise your chipboard to suit your project.
There are, of course, many many more.
I would love to hear or see your favourite ways of changing the look of your chipboard.
