The base of my layout originally started out as a sheet of chipboard from on board lots of letters (pg. 147 code 109182). I love the chipboard but couldn't bear to through the excess away, hence this layout. Something you could also do with the negative chipboard sheet is to use it as a stencil and "colour" with pencils, watercolour wonder crayons or even sponge daubers and inkpads.
Stamps: Winter post, ABC alphabet upper, simple serif mini alphabet and numbers
Cardstock: Whisper white, basic grey, real red, yoyo yellow
Ink: Sahara sand, basic black, whisper white, glorious green, real red
Punches: Square scallop
Accessories: On board lots of letters chipboard sheet, C6 whisper white envelope, stampin' write markers, crystal effects
Other: Silver gel pen
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work. I hope this inspires you to think "outside the box" and you some products you otherwise wouldn't have first thought of. I also have another layout in the gallery using another sheet of chipboard from this same pack http://clairedaly.typepad.com/photos/layouts_about_family/all-of-us-by-ros-davidson.html
Edited to add: I placed real red cardstock behind the chipboard adheing it in place with snail before filling in the letters"d" "e ""m" and "r" with crystal effects.
