It’s Susan … and I have a little technique for altering your chipboard to share this time.
For my layout I have used the FLOURISH ORNAMENTAL - Product Code: C176 and have used a reverse embossing technique. To get the same effect you need follow these steps.
1. Colour your entire chipboard piece in permanent ink or pen (I have used a permanent marker in black for mine.)
2.Run your chipboard piece through the Cuttlebug (or simular machine) I have used a large polk-a-dot embossing folder for mine… use this upside down so the dots are pressing in rather than raised.
3. Using versa watermark ink cover the raised area with the medium and then sprinkle over with clear embossing powder
4. Melt the embossing powder with a heat gun and set aside to dry.
5. Spritz with Calico Shine (Mr. Hueys) and wipe over with a rag to expose the glossy areas.IMG_8477IMG_8478IMG_8479
Hope you like the technique it is super fun to do and gives your chipboard an aged effect. Here is my layout and a couple of close ups for you… and YES it is an old school negative strip on the page circa 2003ish…if you have one I challenge you to use it on a layout soon.
