Altering Chipboard

I have to say, I do have a thing for chipboard. I like to paint it, ink it, stamp it, cover it, fix it up and stick it on stuff. Its just fun. This is a flower closeup shot that I did yesterday. I wanted to make a coaster box in the new Basic Grey Scarlet Letter Paper and needed a doo-dad to stick on the front. Its all about the embellishments ya know *wink wink* Anyway, this was fun! It is covered in vanilla craft ink, then stamped using chocolate chip ink and the French Fair Background stamp. I stamped the Carte Postal stamp in creamy caramel off to one side, then one of the flowers from the Spring Flowers set in Ruby Red. After it all dried I sprayed it with Matte Sealer Spray so it won't smear or get tacky. Here is the finished box.
