WELCOME BABY!

Well it is my turn again and I had some fun designing some pretty card and tag sets using the baby card pack! I am going to share a few tips with you today as chipboards are so versatile.
I love using paint with mine and one of my favourite technique is called "patine" which means to coat an object to simulate aging. With these cards, I coated my chipboard with the main colour (here blue or pink), to age/distress the look I went over with a wet cloth dipped in white paint until I reached the desired effect.



The other technique is using your chipboard as a template, in my case i thought the bib chipboard was really cute but I only had one so I decided to use the hole left after I removed the bib as a template and I used a circle punch to finish the design, I cut a few for thickness and here I had a second cute bib!



The last technique I want to share is using clear embossing powder to enhance part of your chipboard, in this instance the little bib has a little pram engraved in the middle so using a Versamark marker I covered the little pram and covered it with clear embossing powder and heat embossed it, I did the
same with the three little buttons on top of bib.


 And here is my last tip, just little tricks for the extra details! I really hope I did bring some inspiration to our WOW customers!
