Layout with Inked Chipboard

Hi everyone! It's Robbie, today.  I'm sharing a layout that I made using 3 of the Leaky Shed pieces.

This is a picture of my daughter and my niece taken during a girl's only weekend. I took this picture at dinner when we let my husband participate by taking us out for a fancy dinner.  Of all of us, my niece (on the left) deserved to be treated!  She's the sweet mommy of 5!

The Perfect Day

You can see that I used 3 pieces of chipboard.  I kept thinking about techniques to use on them, but finally settled on simply inking them to darken them up a bit.  I love the natural look of the chipboard, as is, but wanted to have them stand out a bit more.

I used Cat's Eye Chestnut Roan chalk ink to add the touch of extra color.

Because I cropped the picture close, the chipboard corner piece made more sense to use a design element to frame the photo instead of being used in the traditional way,  I use a few sticky pearls to embellish it a touch.

Lastly, I used a paper butterfly layered over the top of the chipboard butterfly.  I liked the way I was able to echo and frame the lighter colored paper butterfly to make it stand out more in the design.
