Hello lovelies!

7 Dots Studio had a pleasure of Guest Designing for Scrap Africa – great challenge blog. Challenge#26 – chipboard with a difference – is still alive. You can enter it till February, 28th and win Illumination collection kid and 6×6” pad 🙂

And below you will find inspiration from our talented designers:

(9th Wave collection)

“Captured Moment”

This picture depicts another wonderful day. The kids got to fly their kites at the beach downtown. I used lots of stamping again behind the photo to create texture and movement.

I love capturing these moments in time. These beautiful snapshots of life will help me remember how my kids were then

Altered Chipboard:
I used some Blue Fern Studio chipboard for this challenge. The chipboard icons “Captured” and “Click” were simply inked in Black Coal fluid chalk ink. The Honey comb chipboard was painted in black acrylic paint and while it was still wet, I added some fine glass micro-beads on top to enhance the texture

How I altered chipboards – I have used plain, white chipboards from 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk collection. I embossed them with Lindy Stamp Gang embossing powder, than I paint them with Gelatos from Faber-Castell and at the end I have embellished them with Liquid Pearls.

This is a mini project, a CD wallet perfect for presenting.
The detail of the chipboard arabesque : I cut and texturized using the Sixxiz machine.
I used gold metallic paste and applied some patina techniques using white paint.

(Dreamer collection)

I altered my UmWowStudio layered circles, using a layer of copper paint, followed by a circle confetti mask and heavy body paint, and finally I stamped the chipboard using metal stamps, for the heavily embossed word “fly” on each piece.

(Cold Country collection)


I made a card using the newest 7 Dots Studio collection – Cold Country.
I altered the chipboards with gesso, gel medium, glass filler and two kinds of mist.
Thanks to all those media it looks like it is rusty.


(9th Wave collection)

I just love the versatility that chipboard gives to a layout and I tend to use them on all my projects! All the chipboard used here is manufactured by Scrapmatts and has the option of coming in a white mist finish. The frame, compass and lighthouse received some textured paste, mists and embossing powder. The grass chipboard was soaked with brown mist and I peeled apart the layers to give a more dimensional effect. The fence also received a coat of mist and I then added some gesso for a whitewashed effect. I simply inked the edges of the gorgeous butterfly as it was beautiful just as it was!


(Nature Walk collection)

I covered the brand new 7 Dots Studio chipboards with two coats of embossing powder. For the first coat I used semi-opaque pearl powder and for the top layer four different colors of embossing powder added here and there. While the powder was still hot, I sprinkled some extra glitter on top.

If you feel inspired, maybe you will join Scrap Africa chipboard challenge 🙂

Have a great day,
