I am always looking for ways to dress up my chipboard elements. Today I created some fun layers on my chipboard using shades of copper and rose gold. Take a look at how easy it is to achieve, and one surprising fact I discovered in the process.
I used rose gold foil, some Celebr8 chipboards and Copper All-Purpose ink.
I coloured some of the chipboard elements by using my Fantastix tool and painted a thin layer on top of the chipboard. Some of them I left plain.
I scrunched up the foil piece and then foiled the chipboards. The cracks in the foil added a nice layer on top of the naked chipboard pieces, and on the painted pieces it added more shine but also showed a slight contrast in colours.
What did I learn? Having a painted base layer on the chipboard makes the foiling process look even nicer. Using contrasting colours makes for an interesting effect on the chipboard.
The end result is an amazing array of different looking elements that can used to add interest to your layouts and mixed media projects.
