Chipboard-Palooza

Nothing like waiting at the last minute to enter a contest well things are super hectic this month so I'm really happy to have had a chance to do a page at all!  But when you see the awesome prizes offered by swirlydoos and dusty attic well I just have to play along... you have until midnight tonight if you want to play!

Here is my page.


Everything on here is from Swirlydoos some from the store and some from the kits with the exception of the coordination cardstock I used as the dp it is sanded and distressed!  I love there cardstock lines... it is so much fun to play with... I tried to keep this page simple to add so that my chipboard would stand out more Here are some close up of the DA peices...



I love how delicate the titles are they are so detail and incredibly beautiful.  I painted the chipboard white and I added a little Chestnut Roan to the top and bottom of the title  so that it gradually fades into the white.  It is a technique that I've seen Gabrielle do on her chipboard titles and I just love the look of it so I thought I would try to recreate that.



The snow flakes I did pretty much like Krissy showed with the Glitter video... all the video tutorials were fabulous! 

Oh the page is based on the sketch over at Lasting Memories... They have great weekly challenges... I was in the middle of applying for the DT when I realized how little time I actually have so I think it is better if I just play along when I can for now... at least till things die down... but it was such a great sketch that I still wanted to use it! 

I created the background by stamping a Large elegant word background stamp from Heartfelt Creations.  I then ran my distress ink pad directly on the paper to give it a grungy look.  It just so happens that the challenge at Noel Mignon is Stampy Mcstamperson.  He he I love when that happens!  Well thanks for looking
