My mother sent me a gift - the Melody Ross ChipArt starter set that is for sale at HSN. If you want the set, the price is amazing. I decided that I would make my mom a thank you card with some of the chipboard and tools in the set.
Stamping into the chipboard was pretty easy, but I was at a loss as to how to color it. The Melody Ross site suggested that I paint it, then glaze it with a contrasting color, and wipe away the glaze leaving the darker glaze color in the embossed areas. I have paint, so I gave it a try. I didn't have regular glaze, so I mixed my paint with sparkle varnish instead. The results were not that great, so I took glitter pens and filled in the embossed areas that way.
I had a lot of the glaze left, so I spread it on the base of the second one layer card that I had printed out but hadn't colored yet. I started with just the Bandanna technique, but my glitter pens were right there, so I threw in some color, too.
