Stretch that Chipboard!

No...not literally.


Want to get more use out of a single chipboard...there are things you can do. You can take the piece of chipboard and trace it onto paper. Take it a step further and stitch over the lines you drew. This is what I tried, here is my page:


Close up:
Other ideas to try would include painting the lines, using the chipboard as a stamp and stamping the image onto your paper, or using it as a mask and spraying/sponging ink all around it.


These papers are from Upsy Daisy Designs (their "Spirit" line). Snowflake chipboard is from Basic Grey and chipboard frame is from American Crafts.
