One flower... 4 fun ways by Wendy Vecchi

I love the versatility of our chipboard products.They can be painted, papered, inked & stamped, misted & embossed.

I thought it would be fun to take the same flower and show how to easy it is to give it 4 completely different looks.

1. Trace the flowers onto the back of the patterned paper scraps. Cut out & adhere to the flowers. Sand the edges to distress. Lightly ink with a coordinating distress ink.

1. Ink 2 large flowers with vintage photo, then stamp with coordinating background stamps. Ink the medium flower with broken china, then stamp, again with black and a coordinating stamp.

Assemble the flowers as shown, and add a scrap of chipboard between each layer to add dimension.
