SOS165 - Feathers & Chipboard

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is to use Chipboard.

Since I couldn't find any chipboard I would use, I made my own by cutting up some cereal boxes and die cutting my feather out of them. Then I stamped the feather image on white CS, die cut it and adhered it to the "chipboard" die cut.
Background was done with acrylic block technique on watercolor paper.
  • Paper: Watercolor CS, Island Indigo
  • Stamps: *NEW* Four Feathers
  • Ink:  Pear Pizzas, Island Indigo, Coastal Cabana, Versamark, Gable Green
  • Other: Scissors, Paper Trimmer, mister, white embossing powder, feathers die

SOS164: Back in the Day

This week's theme at Shopping our Stash is Back in the Day, and we'd like everyone to use an old-school tool or an old-time image. Since I purged all my plastic cutting templates and old fashioned eyelet setter I had to use the second option.
I used an old steam engine image from SU Traveler set.  Embossed it with copper EP and layered it on Faux Patina background panel. if you never tried this technique, here is the video tutorial I followed:
Clear It Out Challenge: embossing wet or dry (used both with older EF and EP)
Creative Card Crew - embossing
Sketch Saturday - sketch
A Gem of  A Challenge - embossing
