I finished the fabby Gypsy Soul Laser Cut Chipboard pieces with a base coat of white acrylic paint then added several layers of metallic paints and sprays. Gold would be flashy and silver would be the wrong tone….so why not both? I love the vintage look and it coordinates so well with the patterned papers.

The chippies are layered with the papers and images.  Distressing the edges of the papers helps to add texture and spacers between builds in loads of dimension.
