~Layout with a Grunge Chippie Tutorial~

Hi Again, It's Mandy!!  For this post I thought it would be fun to show you how to create a super grundgy chippie using a Want 2 Scrap chipboard flourish.  I also added it to a layout I made of Michelle Grant, one of Donna's fabulous designers!  So here we go!!
 Here's a close up of the chippie I created!!
 Not All is Pictured, but You will Need:
Mod Podge
Napkin or Tissue Paper
Paint Brushes
Chippie of your Choice
Embossing Powder
Smooch Spritz
 Coat the top of your chippie with Mod Podge.  I used sparkle, because it was right there and ready to use, while my plain Mod Podge was sitting on the shelf :)
If you use tissue paper, just leave it as is, but if you use an old napkin then pull off the backside and just use the top layer.  Glue your chippie to the napkin.  You will not see the pattern of the napkin, so you can even use the backside that you tore off.
 Tear or cut along the edges, like shown.
 Coat the top with Mod Podge again.
 Take a smaller paint brush and go around the edges of your chippie to push the napkin down.  I use water as well, to dilute the glue even further and it makes the napkin even more workable.  It's ok if it tears or sticks out form the edges a little.
 Here's mine done.
Pour on the embossing powder nice and thick.  Use a heat tool and then let it cool.
 Take a tool that punches through the open spaces of your chippie.  It's ok if the napkin tears or comes off a little in spots.
 Spray your chippie with Smooch Spritz.  I used Evergreen on mine.  Let dry and you are left with a super grungy chippie with loads of texture!!
 A couple more close ups!!
