Treating the chipboard:
Let’s start with the easiest, and that is the Chicken Wire Border. I thought it looked like great netting, and I did nothing to the chipboard keeping it natural. Next I took the ships wheel and misted it with a dark brown mister, then once dry I added some sections of clear embossing powder. Cover the “Mystical” title word using Midnight Magic (dark blue) embossing powder. The Seaweed 2 piece is covered in a mixture of yellow and red embossing powder. Seaweed 3 is covered in a purple embossing powder. Finally, cover the coral chipboard piece using the same red embossing powder.
