Read the Step-by-Step Guide Below:
Before anything, pick the chipboard embellishments that you'd like to decorate and use from the pile. I chose these little arrows and hearts for my demonstration.
Paint Your Chipboard with an Ombre Effect
If you just want to add color to your chipboard embellishment, you can use dome distress oxides to make it pop.
Before using inks, make sure you paint the chipboard embellishments with white paint first to achieve a fuller color. Just use a small brush and fill the shapes in and wait for it to dry.
To color the embellishments, I'm using distress oxides. Prepare at least three colors that would work really well together.
Wait! Now That You Have a New Scrapbook Embellishment Idea, Then You'll Need To Know How To Incorporate It To Your Layout....Let Me Show You...
I just started inking the arrow shape with a violet distress oxide as you can see below.
To achieve the ombre effect, just ink the first half with a really dark tone and slowly lighten the saturation as you ink the other side.
You can also try an ombre effect with multiple colors. Just ink half of the shape with one color, and add another one to the rest while blending them at the center.
If you want to seal it, you can also top it off with clear embossing powder while the inks are still wet.
Emboss Your Chipboard and Make It Sparkle!
Embossing never fails when it comes to crafting. If you want to give your chipboard embellishments a shiny effect, it's super easy with the help of embossing powder.
Just press your chipboard into a Versamark watermark ink to get it wet.
Next, grab your embossing powder and sprinkle a good amount on top of it to cover the whole shape. I'm using a copper gold powder which always gives a fantastic look.
Using some tweezers, pick up the chipboard embellishment and shake some of the excess powder. Run it under the heat tool to dry.
If you feel like it needs another layer of embossing powder, just top it off with another sprinkle and repeat the process.
This is how my embossed copper gold embellishment looks once dry. Looks absolutely stunning, right?
Go ahead and try these ideas for your chipboard embellishments! It's super fun and easy, I can't wait to see how your embellishments will make your scrapbook pages extra creative!
