Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop# Give it Wings

Give it wings

Smile - Love - Family

It is hard to believe it is Thanksgiving.  May yours be filled with good friends, wonderful food and family.   My FIL makes the best turkey EVAHHH! and I cannot wait to have some.  There is rarely any left over.  Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to stop by the blog.  If you are new to my blog I am participating in a Sizzix hop.   There is a link on the side where you can view other designs.  As soon as I saw this die cut,  I knew I wanted to make a wall hanging and what materials I wanted to use with the mat-board.  The mat-board is silky smooth and I love the way it takes ink.

I used Clearsnap Chalk Ink, Smooch Spritz, Design Adhesives and Designer Foil.  My color pallet was based on the Chalk Ink stack I used.

I made a small video to demonstrate how to color the chipboard accents.  You can watch the video here. or  Chalk Ink on Sizzix matboard.
