Decorated Chipboard Swap

I am new to joining in swaps on UKS despite being a member there for years. I blame the lovely Karen (Kitty Crafts) for bullying (oops meant encouraging me) to join in.

This one was a swap hosted by my lovely CJ teamie Lynn (Topsy) I think it was maybe her first go at hosting, the idea was to decorate a bare chipboard shape 10 times, sent them off to her and get 10 different ones back. I was nervous about this one as I am always convinced other peoiples work will be soooo much better than mine but I thought what the heck and plunged in anyways. I chose hearts and decided to cover with ultra thick emosssing powder in gold which I then sprinkled green pearl embossing powder into and finally stamped into with a Tim Holtz script stamp. I just hope the recipients like them. I cant wait to see all the lovely shapes I get back.

I enjoyed doing this one so much I have now joined in a decorated chipboard Christmas swap and for that one I have chosen to do snowflakes.

I have a wee while to plan that one though.
