Play with paints and chipboards

Hello, my dear crafty friends! Irit is here and today I have a nice tutorial for you and it's all about  how to cover chipboards with all possible kind of paints.
This is my new way to make our A2Z Scraplets chipboard fancy and shiny step by step.
1. Paint your chipboard with Faber Castell Design Memory crafts Big Brushes. I picked this flower chipboard to make my step by step tutorial, but you can see much more over my finished layout later.

2. After the full Big Brush coverage add some watercolor Gelatos over it. As Big Brush ink is permanent you  don't need to dry it, just go over  the first paint layer with random Gelato spots.

3. Add some highlights with white and yellow Gelatos, don't add any water, just use your fingers to mix the colors over the chipboard.

4. Add some Glossy Accents glaze over the flowers only and use some fine translucent glitter over your glazed parts.

And this is your finished painted piece.

Now you can see 3 more of A2Z  gorgeous chipboards painted in the same way on my new Mixed Media page.

And some close ups over those chipboards too

Hope you are going to try this technique and will show us your results.
