Chipboard challenge


The Tuesday Throwdown challenge blog is hosting a chipboard theme this week, and while I have tons (and I means TONS) of chipboard, I rarely use it. SO...what a perfect challenge for me!

I pulled out this large bird from my Maya Road Chipboard collection and covered it with a sheet of Spring Rain Bitty Box Basics PP that I stamped with BB:Diamonds. I added white gel pen dots to the centers of the diamonds and a Dew Drop eye too!

After using my Spiral Notebook Page die I drew lines on it with a Tombow marker to make it look like real notebook paper and stamped a sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages. Then I stamped another one at the bottom corner of the card to balance things! *wink*
Some trim from Basic Grey and PTI, 2 punched leaf springs, and a few black rhinestones finished it off!

Join us this week at Tuesday Throwdown for a chipboard challenge and a chance to win some stamps!

Thanks for stopping by,
*mwah*
