Challenge #8 with Layle!

Layle from Scenic Route is our Guest host for this challenge!

The technique is to stamp raw chipboard to create a custom pattern.
I have a ton of raw chipboard and I've found that I rarely use it because it requires getting the paint out, letting it dry, cleaning brushes, etc. Using stamps is an easy way to spice up chipboard in about half the time that painting takes. I used Scenic Route Berkely chipboard letters and our Raw Star Shapes and Rhonna's Swirls Acrylic Stamps by Autumn Leaves. I like to use Stayz On Black Ink when I stamp on chipboard because it coats evenly while still maintaing a nice crisp look to the stamped image.
Since I used a piece of paper from our Loveland collection, for the RAK I'll do one of our Loveland Product Kits and some raw chipboard.
Layle
Alicia used a foil pen to color her stars and then stamped clear swirls to give them a little extra kick.
Deb painted, and then stamped hers, and also used some embossing powder to give texture


Jen painted and stamped as well, simple and beautiful.


Becky stamped on the raw chipboard.



We know that you are crazy busy with the holidays, but with this terrific time saving techinique, you will be saving memories and sanity!
Thanks for playing!

what a great challenge! I am so lazy with waiting for the paint to dry that I often just ink the chipboard all over with a stamp pad. I am totally going to try stamping designs though.

Had a lot of fun with this one! I inked my chipboard first to match the colour combo of my layout. Then I stamped it and covered it with 3D glaze. Here it is:
