Tutorial Tuesday: Chipboard Dimension


This week’s tutorial explores one, of the many, creative ways to enhance the look of your chipboard.  By using an embossing folder, a flat piece of chipboard is transformed into a unique three dimension embellishment.  There are various ways to colour chipboard; today’s tutorial will show how to use Adirondack’s paint dauber.
