Our DT challenge this week was to use chipboard, along with our HM&F images..... Well, I own so much of that stuff, YET never seem to use it because I often forget all about it or dont know where to place it. LOL
For my card, 2 separate pieces of chipboard are used: The flourish (that I cut in half to have 2 pieces to corner my frame & the polkadot photo frame).
I also used 2 separate HM Stampabilities stamps, one of Muzzy jumping for joy and another called "Say Cheese" from 1996, #HMUR1021. The HM sentiment is from StampaRosa and that's called "Cheese", You're Wonderful!:, #C-11-2421 from 1999.
My BG was cut with the LG Rectangle Spellbinders Die and shaded in blues with ANM Chalks. All images are colored with Marvy LePlume Markers, CTMH CHALKS, Glitter Gel markers and Metallic Silver Sharpies. The card was then sprayed with hairspray to hold chalk in place. The Chipboard pieces are raised with foam adhesive for added dimension. Silver brads hold chipboard in place on frame corners and are lined up on one end. Whew! That about covers it all. What do you think of my take on the whole Chipboard challenge?!!
