Basic Grey \challenge 18 - Chipboard

For this week's challenge we would like to see you use some chipboard in your creations, fear not if you don't have any chipboard though, a good alternative is to recycle thin cardboard that is usually found in boxes, simply cut some shapes from it, decorate it how you please and your good to go :), and of course not to forget to use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation

I had a bad start this week - I hunted high and low for these chipboard flowers I bought from Funky Kits ages ago and eventually found them where no 'sane' person would have put them - in my sewing box!! I have used Offbeat papers. I covered the flowers, inked the edges and sanded them lightly. I used the Leone Em Ash branch and stamen punches. The buttons, fibres and rub-on sentiment are from stash and I twisted the fibres to give more dimension.
I ended up with a card that is nothing like my usual style.


Materials
Basic Grey Offbeat papers
Chipboard flowers from Funky kits
Leone Em ash brand and stamen punches
