Creative Saturday with Chipboard


Do you have tons of chipboard? I  must admit  I DO..... so today I decided to "get my hands dirty". I made several embellishments and this is how I did them:
Step 1: 
Emboss chipboard pieces in the cuttlebug. (I used different templates).

Step 2: 
Paint them with acrylic paint.(They dry very fast). I also sprayed some of my pieces with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

Step 3: 
Brush Transparent Glass Beads (Liquitex). Let them dry.

Step 4:
Brush Crystal Clear Glaze (Krylon). Let them dry.

Step 5:
Distress with any ink you have available. (This gives them more textured and shows the embossing in your piece).

Step 6:
Embellish wiht metal wire, rhinestones, etc.,  if you wish. 

And VOILA! they are ready for your pages
