That's right! The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is getting chippy... with C is for CHIPBOARD! We're so excited, we're even offering a prize. We have a generous sponsor, Make it Crafty, offering a $10 credit to the Queen of Chipboard Snark.
Amazingly, chipboard is one of those supplies I've managed not to overcollect. But I do have a few pieces from a really old Stampin' Up kit. It was nice of the Sisters to give me a reason to use one!
I started by coating the chipboard frame in gesso — I'm not sure the step was completely necessary, but I thought it would keep ink from sinking in too quickly. Next I patted Versamark all over it and added aged gold embossing enamel. Then I tried the frame with the various Hipsters to see who looked best, and Mr Chimp won. His expression seemed perfect for the sentiment, as well. A little Versamarker allowed me to add a bit of emphasis, and make it look like I totally meant to have that little curve in the clear stamp. Sigh.
Got some chipboard hanging around just waiting to be used? Even if you don't, pro tip: cereal box cardboard works in a pinch! Join the Sisters and our current queen Echo for the current challenge, and you might win a prize as well as the coveted snarky crown!
