Mistakes with Chipboard Can Be Good

Hi Everyone,

I created a canvas with a picture of my boys but wasn't initially happy with how one of the Chippy pieces came out, so I just layered up an came up with this.

I initially used distress ink (tumbled glass) on the Boy Tattoo 4 Chippy.  I lightly touched some of he edges with fired brick to give a bit of depth, inking is my favorite treatment of chipboard.  I then covered it with UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Powder) and heat treated the product.

 Next I took the Our 3 Sons title and used a variety of Faded Jeans, Fired Brick, Barn Door and Tumbled Glass Inks and randomly stamped over the Chippy.  I then gave my usual UTEE Treatment.  After laying the chippy and photo on the canvas background (which had been randomly painted with alcohol inks), I was not happy with the colouring.   So I then white inked over the UTEE, then when that was dry I distress inked with tumbled glass, and applied UTEE again.   When the heat gun started to melt the UTEE this time, cracks began to appear and the first layer of inking showed through.   I continued to force dry and got this beautiful distressed look to the chipboard.

so even if you are not happy with the initial outcome of your chippy, you can add another layer of products and come up with a totally different look.

And for my Final Blog Post with the wonderful Words or Whatever chipboard, I would like to say thank you to everyone for coming and viewing this Blog. I hope you have gotten and continue to get inspiration from the wonderful Design Team.  Don't forget to check out the WOW products at your LSS, and if they don't stock it, ask them to get some in for you.

Take care everyone.
