Tip Tuesday: Decorating Chipboard Shapes

Decorating Chipboard Shapes

Tip #1
Ink the edges with ink pads.

Tip #2
Paint with light colour then dry brush edges with a darker colour or shade.

Tip #3
Cover with dimensional magic to creater a glazed look and feel.

Tip #4
Ink with embossing ink then coat with UTEE and heat. Repeat, then while last coat is still hot, stamp into the UTEE to emboss a pattern.

Tip #5
Cover with glitter then coat with Dimensional Magic to seal.

Tip #6
Add texture paste to the chipboard then swirl and/or stamp into surface to add pattern to the texture.

Tip #7
Apply a paint and crackle medium. Leave to dry thoroughly then rub a darker tone ink or paint into the cracks to highlight.

Tip #8
Add dimensional paints to the surface in a pattern.

Tip @9
Glue paper to the chipboard piece. When dry, trim as closely as you can with scissors, then use a sanding block to sand off the edges, sanding from the front of the piece to the back. The edges will get a little distressed, so add to that by sponging on a little ink around the edges.

We hope you'll enjoy trying these tips!
