Challenge #3 ~ Cover It

I am a little behind right now. I have been battling strep throat and an ear infection and my Mom is quite ill as well. I will get caught up.... starting with another blog challenge!

This challenge entails covering up your chipboard! I admit that I love to pull out the paint, chalk or inks to cover my chipboard with. I also like to stamp and stickle my hipboard as well.

I recieved an amazing kit from Scrapdango an in it was some funky Maya Road tree shaped chipboard. Man.... was I ever excited about them.

I traced the top tree onto some of the green pattered paper from the Bella Blvd line. Yummy!! I then adhered it to my chipboard. On the base I used some awesome Ranger Crackle Paint. It gave the tree trunk a realistic look. I then grabbed a Maya Road bird that came with the kit and inked it with two diferent colors. I added a cute Kaiser Kraft pearl for the eye.

Here is my finished layout:

So... look through your stash of chipboard and cover it up. Then... place it on a layout. Email your layout to me at: to earn a ballot into this month's $50.00 Blog Rak draw. Remember you are creating to win the following:
