Bloggers Challenge: Week #43/Chipboard


This week our goal was to use chipboard on our card/project. I'm behind this week and hope to get caught up. Hopefully the bug my little girl caught takes a quick exit here soon...it's been a long day/night.


I had this idea in my head all week thinking about this project and then of course once I started it; it looked different than what I had been thinking about. Oh well, I'm not the best at creations with chipboard, I'm always stumped at how to cover them and get them to look good.


I colored my chipboard tag piece with a chocolate chip marker to give it a "leather" feel. I embossed the apple in the chipboard piece using my versamark pad and my SU! markers. I was proud of myself for doing some embossing, I never seem to pull out the heat gun and embossing powder.


The layout I used is based on Jen Delmuro's sketch challenge. I never seem to know what to do with my patterned paper and this was a good way to use a few different patterns on one card.


Enjoy!

Very cute, Kim. Hey, did you get your hair cut short?

Great job...it is hard to use those bits and pieces of chipboard, I think! I loved Jen's sketch, too, but didn't think to turn it on the side. Great job!

I like your combo of DSPs and that you used the chipboard in a vertical position!

Good Job Kim, Isn't it funny how our cards sometimes don't turn out like we envision them? - Your apple on the tag is very cute and I especially like the way you layered the different designer papers.

Lori said...

Nice job with the challenge! I like the embossed apple image in the tag.
