It's time for the mid month challenge at Scrap Africa
This time it is hosted by Ada Nicholls
The challenge is to use chipboard and to alter it in some way
I decided to make a card for a special friend and
used some chipboard from my stash
I think is was made by Scrapworx
First I gave the chipboard two coats of gesso, then a coat of
Tim Holtz distress ink "Faded Jeans"
Finally I applied embossing ink and "Aged marine" embossing enamel
which I melted that with a heat gun and while still hot,
added some gold mica fragments, which I melted again.
It may sound complicated, but didn't take long and I love the effect with this vintage image.
I hope you will pop over and see what the rest of the team has created
and join us for a play with altering chipboard.
