Here is my card and a technique using chipboard as stamps!! 

I  hope you enjoy!!


Products I have used: 2 Crafty Chipboard - Mustache set, 'happy' loop font, word bubbles, vintage keys, Dylusions ink sprays - pure sunshine, fresh lime, vibrant turquiose, Prima Washi tape, Distress rock candy crackle paint, clear embossing powder and sequins.



Step 1. Coat watercolour paper 300gsm with Dylusion sprays.


Step 2. Dry the piece using a heat gun.


Step 3. Soak a mustache chipboard with water until it starts to pool on top of it. Chipboard is quite sturdy, I completed this whole piece and it didn't even look like it was 
going to fall apart!!


Step 4. Place the chipboard water side down on to the sprayed piece and hold it there for a few sections.


Step 5. Remove the chipboard and dab the area with a clean tissue to remove the watered down excess dye. 


Step 6. You can see how the impression left a watermark effect!


Step 7. Keep spraying the mustache chipboard with water and using it as a stamp all over the watercolour paper until you are happy with the result. Dry again with heat gun.


You will end up with a great coloured mustache as well, I coated this with Distress rock candy crackle paint. The 'Fun' speech bubble was coloured with Dylusions vibrant turquoise  then coated with clear embossing powder to give a shiny feel to the piece. The 'Happy' was sprayed with Dylusions pure sunshine and the key was coated with yellow ink.


Here is my prize pack for you to win thanks to 2 Crafty Chipboard, Flourish with a Bling and Manor House Creations, good luck!
