Leaky Shed chipboard, available at the Flying Unicorn store!

Hi everyone and happy Wednesday!  Maggi here today to share my favorite chipboard embellishment technique.  I love Leaky Shed Studio's chipboard embellishments, they just add so much to a layout!  Here I've added a couple of Leaky Shed keyholes and a key.  I love how they add just the right touch of vintage to this layout.  

Notice how the keyhole looks pitted and tarnished.  I achieved that look by first covering my chipboard with brass cream rubon.  You could just as well paint the chippy too.  Then I dabbed on a little embossing ink, (I use an embossing ink dabber from Stampendous rather than an ink pad), being careful not to cover the entire chipboard, then I sprinkled on Stampendous Aged Bronze embossing enamel.  That is my go to enamel for chippies!   I wanted to be sure and keep the detailed lines visible on the chipboard so I took a needle and drew it through the lines to clean out any embossing powder that had adhered to the grooves.  You can also take a fine paint brush and sweep off some of the powder if you have too much.  Now you are ready to heat set the powder and this is the result.

I just love the look on this key!
