Drunken Stampers Challenge #149 - Thing / Chipboard


Happy Saturday!!! It's time for another Drunken Stampers challenge!! This week's Person / Place / Thing challenge is a THING....and that thing is chipboard!! For this challenge use either chipboard or grungeboard on your project.

Visit the DRUNKEN STAMPERS BLOG  for all the details on this challenge and be sure to visit the blogs of my Yellow Canary teammates and show them some crafty love!!

I am not sure what I am more happy with on this challenge, the tag itself or the picture I took of it...look at me getting all creative using miscellaneous pieces of nature in my photo!!! Figure I should try and take pictures outside while it's still warm enough!

OK back to the tag...I really really really have fun making tags, adding mish mash of different things until I am happy with how it looks. I started with a kraft tag, inked up the embossing folder with crumb cake ink before running it through the cuttlebug. Then I went over it again with tea dye distress stain to add more colour in spots. On went the ruler washi tape, then the filmstrip ribbon over that. I used burlap paper for the banner and with the black ribbon on top. Then I added all the other little pieces, the gear and spinner, 13 sticker, bolt brads and SEQUINS!!!!! My Drunken Stamper pals will be so proud of me for using some sequins on my tag (I bought 6400 sequins this week!!!). I liked the pop of colour in the light bulb to brighten the neutrals on the rest of the tag.
