Like many of you, I love finding new ways to use my supplies, ways to make them more versatile. And like a lot of you, I have tons of chipboard. Turning my chipboard into metal seemed perfect.
I started with just a few supplies; the chipboard I wanted to alter, an embossing pad, and some Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder.
I stamped my chipboard with the embossing pad, applied the embossing powder, and then heat set.
After the chipboard was cool, I rubbed off a bit of the powder.
I added a bit of Distress Ink in Vintage photo with my blending tool.
And I was left with rusty metal.
Which were perfect for photos of my son. I always struggle with boy pages. There just never seems to be enough embellishments to suit the men in my life. Being able to make my own really helps.
