Chipboard Stars with Ink and Bling

Have you ever tried using ink on chipboard items? If not, then this project is for you! Using chipboard and ink is fun and versatile and the best part is being able to tailor your embellishments to match your project.

This is my adorable niece Adrienne. The stars by Want2Scrap suited this layout perfectly and I decided to dress them up a bit with some spray inks and Want2Scrap bling.

If you would like to try this technique, it is really easy. For the stars I first painted them white then I sprayed both red and blue spray ink on to them. Then I just popped them up and added a little bling. There you go. A perfect little shooting star!!

What better way to make a layout all American than to add a little denim pocket. I chose to adhere my journaling to the pocket but another idea is to use the pocket to hold some hidden journaling, a card or a note.

See if you can come up with fun uses for your chipboard project. I hope this has inspired you! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
