BG Challenge 17 - Chipboard

For this weeks challenge we would like to see you use some chipboard in your creations, fear not if you don't have any chipboard though, a good alternative is to recycle think cardboard that is usually found in boxes, simply cut some shapes from it, decorate it how you please and your good to go :), and of course not to forget to use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation...

...well, I've had this chipboard since I purchased my 2 scoops collection which is about a year ago and I'm only using it now (shame on me!) The background is created with a few tears and some ripping and a little of Tim's paper distresser. Then ink pad skipping over all the edges and the paper lace. I have die cut the flower in different 2scoops papers and layered to make the chip board form a stalk.

I had a little disaster with the bookplate shape and it has now been inked, sanded, reinked, rubbed, distressed and few other effects (efforts) I believe it started pink and now it's green! I stamped sentiment and heated with white embossing powder finished off with a touch of bling and 2 scoops brads! The butterfly is my own version of grand adhesion's I've punched the butterfly three times and layered, love this effect!

I think your card is awesome!! I love all the layers and all the chipboard elements on it. I think the bookplate looks great and the color is perfect for the card. Thanks for the blog award. I will have to work on that for the coming week.

STUNNING - love the colours and the Two Scoops papers are perfect for the overall 'dreamy' effect of this card. I'm glad you had a disaster with the bookplate shape and it is now green as I think it leaves the flower to really 'pop' from the card.
Gorgeous job with the stalks too.
hugs Heather xx

So beautiful Kim! The flower is perfection and the colours and all the layers are stunning. You made me laugh about your bookplate but it was worth all your effort, it's a wonderful finishing touch and the green is perfect. Chris x
