Chirpy Chipboard

Hello ...

It's time for a new challenge at City Crafter and this week our challenge has been set by the very talented Anna
The challenge is to use at least one piece of Chipboard on your project ...

I wonder if like me you have tons of it squirrelled away ... Well it was time to dig it out and make a little something with it 


I used 3 chipboard pieces, a bird, a branch and a border cut in half


For the bird and branch I used distress stains to colours them and for the scalloped borders I just smooched them with a pearlescent Brilliance ink 


There are so many ways to use your chipboard and to colour them ... We're hoping that you will join us at CCCB this week and share your beautiful creations ... Our guest Designer this week is the lovely Robyn ... be sure to check out her project along with those of my fellow DT.

Kirsty is also sponsoring a prize  to our winner this week ... a Maya Road chipboard alphabet package


So get out your chipboard and get creative!

Have a beautiful Day!

Hi Ros, I love your style, so eye catching. I too have heaps 'squirreled' away all my pieces I've had for years..but maybe they'll get a bit more use from now on. Cheers and have a wonderful week Robyn

Wow! Love all the chipboard pieces! I especially love the pretty bird! It reminds me of the Sterling Jay we recently saw in Yosemite National Park. I'll have to post photos soon. And, I'll have to get out some chipboard I've been hoarding! Thank you for the inspiration!:)

You created something stunning; my oh my. I love what you did with that bird. The layers on top by using a border, cutting it and add a touc of ink is a fab idea. It is a gorgeous card and I love the little botanical scene you created.
I wish I had more time to blog but both our gardens (at home and the vegetable garden) are so time consuming at this moment. Due to the wonderfilthe wonderful weather I do a lot of weeding:) But I love to visit you and glad i coudl squeeze in sme time to leave a comment. Wish there was more time in a day...
