A Smorgasbord of Chipboard

Hi there,

It's currently raining here which is a pleasant change. Hope you got some rain too.

For something different, I've been busy making cards instead of layouts. I've gone into a chipboard frenzy with these! I've layered all sorts of chippy shapes and topped the final layers with Tinby Metallic Melts for a cool finish.

Here are the cards:

Starting from the back layer, I used Dylusions ink spray on cardstock. I then added white spray-painted Dusty Attic chipboard backgrounds. On top of that are various Dusty Attic chipboard shapes which I have either painted, covered in paper or added Metallic Melts to. A list of the individual products is listed below.

I have used the following Dusty Attic chipboard on all the cards:

Banners #1 DA1022

Scribble Hearts DA1019

I also used Soot and Alabaster Dusty in Colour paints and Clear Gloss Varnish. The Metallic Melts colours are Patina and Carbon.

Products used as well as those already listed:

Number Panel Small DA1051

Speech Bubbles DA1067

Number Grid Large
(I cut the number '50' from this)

Products used as well as those already listed:

Number Grid Small DA1071

Photo Props DA 1056

(The number '21' was cut from the large Number Grid)

Products used as well as those already listed:

Mini Trellis DA1033

"bon voyage"
Products used as well as those already listed:

Around the World DA1036

Mini Hot Air Balloons DA1069

Him & Her Border DA1065

I hope these cards inspire you to make your own. Chippies are fabulous on cards!
