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
Just Us Girls - blue, green & neutral
Paperminutes - dies

I am in love with that background technique. I finally pulled myself out of the rut and now I no longer use it on EVERY card. It's so easy to do and the results are always fun!

I LOVE your chipboard feathers. Striking colors!
