Wendy Vecchi Flowers Say It All Chippies Magnets

Hello All, and happy new year to you! This post is the start of new products launching with Ranger Ink, and there are so many more to come. Wendy Vecchi has just introduced her new Chippies! Did you catch her Live earlier today? She had so many wonderful samples using the new Chippies. They are just darling pieces of chipboard, five sets in all with Bases and Frames, Leaves, Blossoms, Wreaths, and Beverages. They all primed with gesso which allows you to use so many mediums on, and you can even dry emboss on them which I thought was the best technique using them, and that's what I've done on these magnets I made using so many of the Chippies, plus I painted on them too. I just love flowers, and I tried to coordinate these using them in different ways, and I think they will make great little Valentine or Birthday gifts. Enjoy!
Introducing Wendy Vecchi Make Art Chippies!

Select the Chippies you want to use for the magnets and cut if need be (I cut the wreaths for leaf swags.), and arrange the them the way you want. You might want to take a photo of your arrangements to help you in the planning.

Using Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Paint, paint over the cups, saucer, and tea bag tags. Paint over heart frame and spoons with Silver Metallic Paint Dabber. Ink over the solid heart with Mulberry Archival Ink and an Ink Blending Tool. Let all dry. 
Mask off stripe on the large cup with Sticky Notes, and ink in with Mulberry. Ink the flower centers or petals with Mulberry using the tool or a detail craft swab if the parts are too small. Use a Black Fude Ball Pen to color in the etched lines on the border of the stripe on the cup. 
Using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Star Bright Texture Fade, emboss the small cup (try to leave the inside of the cup not embossed by placing the cup on the edge of the fade), saucer, large tea bag tag, solid heart, and the handle of the largest spoon, doing each separately for the best image placement and run them through the machine three times each for nice detailed embossing. 
 Ink over all leaves with Pricky Pear first and then some parts in English Ivy Archival and the Ink Blending Tool. Ink in petals and centers of flowers with Golden Rod Archival. Leave some petal parts white. 
Ink in bow with Mulberry. Using the tip of your finger, add Mulberry Archival to the raised parts of the embossing on the little cup and saucer and large tea bag tag, by gently rubbing over the design to color it in to see it better. Do the same with the raised designs on the heart but use Antique Linen Distress Paint. Let them dry. Use a detail paint brush to paint in wispy lines over the petals of the flowers using Antique Linen. Add some more detail wispy lines to the flowers and bow with yellow and red Pitt Pens. Adhere heart to frame and some of the flowers to stems with Perfect Card Adhesive.
 Stamp 'Flowers Say It All' sentiment three times onto Ivory Heavystock using Black Soot Archival, from the set with the same name. Cut apart and ink the edges of the those with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Stamp small heart from Merci and More onto the small tea bag tag using Mulberry. Tie string to the tea bag tags. Figure out where you want the sentiments to go and add foam tape to the back of each. Assemble all three designs together using Perfect Card Adhesive, and ink any edges as you go with Black Soot or Gathered Twigs. 
Add sticky magnet sheet to the back of each design, making sure they stick well to the Stay-tion so you know they will work properly. Use Sunflower and Garnet Liquid Pearls to dot the centers of each flower and anywhere else you want using, and use  a stylus to help you make perfect dots by picking up the color from the Stay-tion and dotting it on with the stylus if you have a hard time controlling the Pearls straight from the tube. Let dry.
