Tips for colouring your chipboard !

Tip 1 - use watercolour shimmer markers to colour your chipboard and 
add that layer of shimmer and shine.

Tip 2 - Use paint dabbers to create an ombre effect on your feather chippie pieces. 

Paint the top of the feather in one colour and then using the other paint dabber, 
colour the bottom of your feather and use the dabber to gently blend the two colours together. 

Tip 3 - Adding distressed foil accents to your chipboard pieces

Use a cheap glue stick and rub over your chippie pieces roughly. 
Using tweezers add foil flakes over the top of your glue areas. 
Let dry and then using a large stiff paintbrush, roughly brush
over the top of the chippie pieces, brushing off the excess foil leaving
distressed foil accents.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, I would love it if you left me some feedback xx
