Swirlydoos Kit Club, Ultimate Designer Challenge, Week 1

I am competing for a spot on the Swirlydoos design team. This is the first week of the competition. The challenge was to create a dimensional chipboard embellishment that uses at least two art mediums.

For the first part of the challenge, I started with a Maya Road chipboard "Supernova" star and circle. I inked the circle with Fired Brick Distress Ink, then I painted it with Martha Stewart glitter paint. The liquid in the paint reacts with the ink to create a rick, dark color that is coated in sparkle!

I covered the star in vintage sheet music and sanded and inked the edges. I adhered the star to the circle using pop dots. Then I added a book page rosette behind the circle, glittered the edge, and then added a coffee-stained crepe paper ruffle.

For the second part of the challenge, I needed to add my chipboard embellishment to a layout, card, or altered project. I decided to make the embellishment the focal point and created a prize ribbon, which I added to an over-sized card.

I covered a piece of cardboard with various scraps of vintage papers, and added "Congrats" down the side.

I also added a pin back to my prize ribbon - so it's a card AND a gift :)
