Supplies Needed:
(Sorry I forgot to take a photo of the supplies)
- Chipboard element
- Acrylic Paint
- Glimmer Glam
- Paintbrush
- Heat tool
- Distress embossing powder (or regular embossing powder)
- Distress Ink
- Clear embossing ink
- Stamp
- Water
- Paper towel
- Glimmer mist
- Ink pad
- Kitchen sink (just kidding :o)













 STEP 1:  Paint the chipboard element with acrylic paint.  Dry with a heat tool.



STEP 2:  Brush Glimmer Glam onto the chippie and allow to dry.   


 STEP 3:  Apply clear embossing ink to stamp and stamp image onto chippie.  Be careful not to overlap the image.


STEP 4:  Apply embossing powder over chippie.


 STEP 5:  Shake off excess embossing powder.  Heat the chippie with a heat tool until the embossing powder melts.


STEP 6:  Blot a Distress Ink pad directly onto the chippie.  Spray with water and allow the ink to bleed and soak into the chippie.  











STEP 7:
 After a minute or so, blot the excess ink with a paper towel.  Spray on some pearl Glimmer Mist and dry chippie with a heat tool.  Ink the edges for added depth.





And you're done!  I love the resulting texture.  Thanks for checking out my tutorial!
