Maya Roads Chip Board

Before I tell you about the chipboard, I do have to say that I just had the most awesome time at The Crafty Scrapper's Birthday Bash! Oh my Gosh, it was HOT! Forty Percent of an item of your choice, two make and takes by Maya Roads and one by Ten Second Studio! I was happier than a little pig in the corn!

So....I wanted to share with you some treatments you can use on your Maya Roads chip board letters.
1. Mist them using the Ranger misters. (Fill the mister 3/4 of the way with water. Use a few drops of your favorite ink. Scoop in some Perfect Pearls. Shake and spray.)
2. Cover them with paper and file the edges. I really love using the Basic Grey Files for this. I did this in the Happy Birthday Daddy LO.
3. Stickle them! You can cover them completely and thickly like I did on the base cliff on the top photo or you can ink them and spread a very thin layer of stickles for a shiny look
4. Paint them and doodle on them.
5. Add some bling.

I just can't get enough of these Maya Roads chipboard embellishments! They are so much fun to use! I would love to hear about how you alter your Maya Roads chip board too.
