Technique Tuesday

Good morning girlz!! Hope you are having a great week! Yesterday, for our Monday Motivation, Cheryl challenged us to us chipboard shapes. For today's Technique Tuesday, we're gonna take it a step farther.....

Use Distress Inks/Fluid Chalk On Naked Chipboard

This is a really neat technique that adds a vintage/shabby chic flair to your projects! Here is my example:

I used Colorbox Fluid Chalk in Dark Brown to distress my chipboard swirls & letters. I love the way it looks on the naked chipboard. So give it a try! Complete a page using distress ink on naked chipboard and I'll give you 15 FRIENDZ POINTZ!!! Don't forget to post a a pic or a link to your page in the forum in this thread so you can get your FPZ!
Have a great day!

(not to mention most of you do these for other sites as well!!)
give me some of that super power!! LOL

Girl... I hardly ever have scrappy time!! I usually start a page and leave it out in my scraproom and I just work on it here and there as I get a chance... eventually it gets done!

Just finished my LO. Will have to post the link tomorrow. DD has the camera.

Elizabeth- I get my scrappy time during the day when all 4 kids are in school and late at night after everyone is in bed. :)
