Place chipboard shape onto scrap paper and paint top surface using foam brush. Allow to dry slightly and apply a second coat of paint.
Remove piece from scrap paper and place on a paint safe surface, removing any excess from crevices by blowing the paint toward the back of the piece and gently wiping away the excess using a paper towel. Allow to dry fully before proceeding to step three.
Use a small piece of fine sand paper to gently scuff the edges of the painted piece.
Look at the entire piece and continue to distress edges until you have a finished "shabby chic" feel to the piece.
If desired, distress the entire top surface of the piece using Creamy Brown Chalk Ink applied with a piece of sponge
Embellish top surface of Chipboard Embellishment Shape as shown using assorted rhinestones & pearls. You now have a finished piece ready to be used on any paper crafted project!
