thursday...Handmade Chipboard Tutorial

Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you a quick tip on how to make your own chipboard!


Step 1. Die cut your shape out of chipboard or thick cardstock such as the one used to bind a paper stack.

Step 2. Stamp your image unto the chipboard with archival ink. If you do not use archival it will bleed through

Step 3. In random areas, lightly ink the image to create an antique look.

Step 4. Finally, add crackle medium and let it dry.

Here's a close up of my finished piece in my layout:

Note: You do not have to treat the chipboard as I did. Once your chipboard piece is finished you can color it with acrylic paints, mist it with glimmer mist or leave it as is. Many designers this month are having chipboard treatment tutorials so I encourage you to try one of those tutorials on your handmade chipboard piece!

Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my tutorial! Come back tomorrow and you can see the whole layout and how I used my chipboard in my layout!
