A Card or Two and an OTP Project!

Hello there!!

Tania here with you today to share with you my first blog post for WOW Chipboard...... I have to say I was super excited when asked to join the WOW DT as they have so many gorgeous products.

First up I am going to show you some cards using a few of those gorgeous products.

I wanted to alter my chipboard to give it a grungy look but still wanted my cards to look girly if that makes sense?  I started by painting my chipboard with gesso, once dry I gave it a coat of rock candy crackle paint.  While the Triangle panel was still wet on the middle card I added a few sprinkles of rust powder.  I then finished off the chipboard by adding Glossy Accents to it.  The Mini Cogs have been left raw :)


"Birthday Cards"


For my first card I have used the Small Triangle Panel - WOW2425, Birthday Pack - WOW2381, Mini Cog Pack - WOW1568.



On the second card I have used a Flourish Frame - WOW247,  Circle Frame - WOW1252 and have again used the Mini Cogs - WOW1568.



On my last card I have used the Decorative Circle - WOW1577 and once more the Mini Cogs - WOW1568.


My second project to show you is WOW's Heart Shadow Box's which I have altered and I thought I would share with you how I did this.

"Angel Heart Shadow Box"


Once I had put the shadow box together I used some Tim Holtz tissue paper roll to do my first layer.  I shredded the paper, scrunched it up and then opened it back up.


I completely covered the whole heart as you can see below and adhered the tissue paper to the heart using Studio Multi Medium.


 Next up I used AltaMATZ diamond shape stencil from 12X12-4-in-1-design-2 ALTA254 and some texture paste and randomly applied this over the shadow box.


This is the fun bit - decorating the box.  First, I sprayed the box with a couple of Mists, Pink from Kaiser and a Gold from Heidi Swapps Color Shine Range.


Once the mists were dry I then grabbed some Inka Gold in pink and Gold randomly applied this around the edges and raised sections.


The other WOW pieces I used are Doily #6 Heart - WOW950, Messy Hearts - WOW2230 Angel Pack - WOW2382 and Kristin Flourish - WOW2073 and I altered these by using my finger and rubbing on the Inka Gold paints randomly on the pieces until they were completely covered.


I finished off my Heart Shadow Box by embellishing it with lots of pretty blooms and lastly with a sponge, sponged gesso over sections of the box and flowers.

Here's a couple of close ups.




Well that's all from me today.  I do hope you have enjoyed the projects I have shared with you today.

Tania xx
