Pretty basic-next you wipe over the chipboard with your ink pad. I used Stampin' Up "Buckaroo Blue" to match the colour scheme, but I have used chalk ink before & I do prefer that softer/creamy look. Up to you-have a play & see what you prefer.
All done? If the ink looks too dark, swipe very gently with some white ink or too light, swipe with more colour. I also drew some dash/faux sewing lines around the edges with my white gel pen.
You could use your altered letters or shapes on scrapbook pages, cards, tags for Christmas & birthday presents, kids school books, your family hat/coat rack...the list goes on!
On the layout below I used chalk ink on the letters.
