More chipboard samples!

Up till now, most of the Lasered Edge chipboard die cuts I've been designing for Love is in the Details, have been meant for cards, but I wanted to show you some of the new, bigger designs that work well for both layouts and canvases like these ones!

This sentiment is about 8" tall.  I left it in it's natural state (the way I like it best), and just distressed the edges slightly, with Gesso to give it that little som'thin, som'thin.  

 I used some Blue Fern Studios chipboard - the chicken wire design, as well as some corrugated cardboard, paper and metal flowers, felt leaves, lace and cheesecloth.  I "faded" the background a bit with more Gesso, and blobbed on some black Neo Opaque Artist Acrylic. 


For this 6"x6" canvas, I covered the whole thing with stamping and washi tapes and then painted a light coat of pink, peach and red.  Using those colors of ink, I colored some modeling paste to match, and layered it over the Tim Holtz sunbeams stencil to create the rays.  Before the paste dried, I dropped chunky glitter and micro beads into it. 
Again, I spray painted the sentiment (which would make a great card one as well) with white, dabbed more gesso on the metal butterfly, and the dried dimensional paste.
The chiffon flower is one I made awhile back using this technique.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
