I fiddled with these last week and came up with a result with which I am very pleased. (Eldest daughter Madeleine "helped" me by telling me when it looked bad). I used this technique on the title of my Sun Fun scrapbook page. And, of course, chipboard is an easy accessory for those tricky masculine projects.
See below for the tutorial of what I did; this is just the basics – the possibilites are endless! See here for the tutorial on how I did the flowers for this page.
I'd love to see how you use your chipboard! Besides embossing, some other ideas are:
1. cover with designer series paper
2. cover with versamark and pastels
3. stamp straight onto the board itself
