Hi, it's Kaz here again and I've been using the larger sized chipboard Mum. This one is about 18 cms long, so it really is the focus on any project. I had the perfect sized tin for it too.
The tin has been decorated with alcohol inks.
I gave the chipboard a coat of gesso first then, once dry, I used distress inks to colour it. Distress inks tend to 'sink' a little bit into the gesso which gave it a lovely softer shade base. I also gave the sides a coat of white acrylic paint.
I then went to town with a variety of stamps and versamagic inkpads to produce a collage effect.
Finally I used a cotton bud to add ink to the edges of the chipboard and added a few flowers for decoration.
