Chipboard Bubble Technique

Happy Monday.  Today I am doing a bit of a different post.  Today will be a card including a technique.  

I chose to do bubble paint on chipboard.

You will need
1.  Some chipboard cut outs.  I used an old cereal box and cut my pieces with my cutter.  I did double cut just to be sure it cut through nicely.  I used the gears from the file 
2. Paintbrush
3.  Acrylic paint
4. Perfect Pearls (optional)
5.  Some glaze (optional)
6. Heat gun


 Start painting your pieces. Once covered completely in paint, used your heat gun to start drying the paint.


 You will notice the paint starts to bubble.  That is the effect we want.  Continue to do about 3 layers of paint and drying.


End result.

Here is the card!

I went on to add some perfect pearls and dimensional glaze to my chipboard.  I just dry brushed the perfect pearls on.  For the title of the card "LIFE".  First I just chalked the chipboard with a brown chalk, I added some dimensional glaze and thought, "What the HEck!!"  I used my heat gun to dry the title and then also added some perfect pearls. I thought that both looked so pretty cool.

The little lace flower.  I took a piece of lace and ran a running stitch through the lace.  I gathered the lace and just secured it with a stitch to form the flower.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and have fun trying out this technique
