It's so girly....



Every card I post this week will have CHIPBOARD on it! I have so many packages of chipboard, and am always finding more that I want to get, so for this whole week I'll put a piece on every single card!
-
This 4.25" x 4.25" was made using one of my round coasters from Michaels. These were found in the dollar area and come 8 to a package. I covered the coaster with paper from Autumn Leaves Foof*A*La - from Scrappers Bliss . I also used this as the background, just had the stripes going the opposite direction.

The stamps are from Autumn Leaves - Rhonna Farrer "Flower" set - another little goodie I bought from Scrappers Bliss. I stamped the flowers on white paper, watercolored the petals a little, then distressed the edges. I used my cuttlebug leaf die to cut the leaves.

My big { was from Stampin' Ups On Board Accents - I stamped it was turquoise and green liquid chalk - this stuff works great for covering chip board - it dries quick and covers really well! I tied a little ribbon around the "{".

Michelle - that is absolutely gorgeous!! amazing! thanks for sharing the tip about the Michael's coasters from the $1.00 bins; i saw those and of course passed them right up. Of course you've turned them into a beautiful piece of artwork! k eep up the great work!

Michelle, I love it! And what a great idea! I think I need to do something like this on my blog. I hoard so many weird things like this (chipboard, new PP, etc). I think if I challenge myself like this, I would actually use it up instead of keeping it until something *cooler* comes out! LOL!!
