Here are a few close-ups of the various chipboard accents. In this first one, I used one of the ribbon slides and rubbed CRAFT Pumpkin Pie ink on it. Once it was dry, I applied a rub-on. Why am I using Craft ink rather than Classic? Either one works, but since the Classic is a dye-based ink, it absorbs into the chipboard and the color changes slightly. The Craft ink is pigment based and stays on top of the chipboard so the color remains true. It's a subtle difference, so if you only have Classic ink, go with that (or buy the Craft inks from me :-) )
On this chipboard star accent, I used Craft Tempting Turqouise ink to cover the star. Once it was dry, I stamped it with Craft Whisper White ink using a stamp from the Polka Dots & Paisley stamp set.
This final accent is one I kind of made myself. After using the solid star image somewhere else, I cut around the star shaped hole that was on my chipboard sheet and created this frame. Make sense? It's a cheap way to get even more use out of your chipboard. Before you start telling me how smart I am, I have to admit that another demonstrator shared this idea at a group meeting.
This is just the beginning of a few ideas I'll share with you about ways to use chipboard. Stay tuned...
