Chipboard!

Supplies:  Cheerios Cereal box, Spectacles Set - Sweet Stamp Shop, 
Free Spirit Sentiments - Waltzingmouse Stamps, Black Tuxedo 
ink - memento, Anita's A6 White card blanks, pop dots, 
black sharpie, acrylic block, kraft knife, scissors and glossy accents.

Yeah... the challenge this week on Paperplay is CHIPBOARD!! 
To see my teamies creations - check out the chipboard fabulousness here.

To me chipboard is all around us and I love crafting with it, cutting it, painting it and not necessarily the stuff that comes prepackaged as flourishes/alphas etc.

I stamped the spectacles on a cereal box (yeap... aka chipboard!) with black ink.  I then carefully cut around them with a tiny scissors and kraft knife.  I then went over them with a black sharpie to make sure they were "really" black.  I then added a layer of glossy accents and set aside to dry.  I cut cardstock to mat and stamped the sentiment.  Added pop dots, layered and then added the spectacles with tiny foam squares to the front of the card.

Entering this into the Spectacular Spectacles Challenge over on Moxie Fab World.
