'Amaze Yourself'

Hello friends! The girls over at the challenge blog Kraft Plus invited a couple of 2 Crafty Chipboard
chicks to guest design this month and this is what I came up with.

I started with a piece of thick card stock that comes whenever you purchase scrapbook paper, covered it in clear gesso, a good thick messy coat of heavy white gesso, spread on some Prima pink acrylic paint in 'Vintage Rose' through a stencil and then heated it up so that the pink paint bubbled up a bit to get some cool textures. The challenge this month is Kraft Plus Sheet Music, so I added some bits of a vintage piano book that I found at an estate sale.

Here is the challenge this month:

To read more about this month's challenge 
and to see some FAB pages from the design team
please go here. I hope you join in, there is a great chippie
prize pack to be won.

I used the following pieces of 2 Crafty Chipboard:

'Mini Branches'
'Oval Frame'
'Amaze Yourself'

For all of my chippies I first covered then in white acrylic paint, brushed on some 
Art Anthology ink and then stamped the oval frame lightly with black ink.
I also used some of the negative pieces of the 'Mini Branches', that I painted with 
some pink Lindy's Stamp Gang mist, it's an unusual way to add some interest to your layers 
and to get the most out of your chipboards :)

I am so happy to share how honored I was to be invited to stay on as a 2 Crafty chick!

Check out the new design team...

Thank you so much Vanessa for this amazing opportunity!
