I opened my new packet of Stampin' Up!'s On Board Merry Medley chipboard, to have a play, because colouring chipboard is not something I've done much of.  I chose a butterfly shape, then sponged it with Whisper White ink and a sponge dauber.  After a generous blast of heat from my heat gun, it dried beautifully and was ready to be turned purple!  I've sponged Wisteria Wonder ink, using my stampin' pad and sponge dauber, over the surface.  I then stamped, using Concord Crush, the gorgeous delicate image from Stampin' Up!'s "Always Elegant" set.

I repeated the same stamped image all over the base card (using Versamark), and have kept the card simple, to let the patterns of the stamp and paper do the talking.  This card is for a lovely friend who did something very thoughtful for me yesterday.

  3. Beautiful card Christine! I love the purples and the delicacy of the stamp you used.

  4. I don't use much chipboard but perhaps I should start! The Wisteria Wonder looks wonderful (and is winging its way to me as I type...!) Vx

  5. Thats absolutely beautiful! I am such a slacker and don't use chipboard much, but you've inspired me to drag out the few pieces I have and put them to good use! Thanks chicki!

    Luv K
