I saw this idea of using the Colour Core'dinations cardstock aaaggggeeessss ago when it first came out. I slotted the 'blackboard technique' away in the dim dark recess of my mind to  pull out later if the opportunity came up. I forget whose LO it was back then, so I cant give credit where credit is due. Sorry about that.

Finally it has popped up.

Very easy technique. Adhere large chip alphas on the back of the cardstock (in reverse order and using your tape runner on the front of the letters.) Sand back with sandpaper fairly firmly. All done and as easy as that.

I used a kilt pin to hang the Heidi Swapp Verb Sticker (I left the backing on it) as a charm. There's a hint of green paint that I dry brushed from right to left and Marshmallow White Glimmermist which I ran across the page. Trying to get the 'arty' look to go with the Picasso title. lol. Looks more like a seagull with a tummy bug trademark.

What an effective way of using that product, I love the result. Well done - I think I'll be filing that away in my ideas box too. The whole layout looks really good, Tiff.
