Nestaboard Tutorial...lets get dirty!

I decided it was time to play with the Nestaboard™ from Want2Scrap™ and see how versatile it is...guess what, just as I anticipated...very versatile. I pulled out my Chipboard tools to see if they worked on the Nestaboard™! They sure do!

The first step is to spray the Nestaboard™ with water until it is wet. I used the Nestaboard™ Labels One, don't you love them!

While it is still wet insert the head into the stamp and hammer away until the Nestaboard™ stamp is embossed on the chipboard.

I used some black paint to cover the entire surface. Then I used a foam brush and very lightly painted on a contrasting color. Do no dab, but just lightly brush on the paint. To finish it off paint on a very thin layer of sparkle mod podge. This is the final product...It really looks great along with the Nestabling™ Labels One in Black Rhinestones.

Now add it to your card or layout!

I had a ton of fun playing with this, and it creates a beautiful technique that will be unique every time! Now why don't you pull out those tools and play too!
