Have you seen the hot new trend of
Chalkboard Art? I have just seen it
recently....had to give it a go! It's
a fun, easy technique....once you get
the hang of it.
I decided to try a Valentine card:
The key is.....trying your images on scrap
paper first to get an arrangement you like.
Then you take black cardstock....good
idea to use an "anti-static" embossing
buddy (Kim will be getting more)....then stamp images..
.I used Tim Holtz stamps...Kim has some of these...
can order the others. For me, I like having
the images all stamped and then emboss all
at once, or you can choose to do one at a time.
This was done using WOW embossing powder
(I used Opaque Bright White...Kim can order!).
Next up, you stamp again.... slightly off this time
with white ink....to give the shadow effect.
Then use a white colored pencil to trace around.
I also used a soft pink for a little color, tho it's
hard to see. You also want to add a few chalky
white smudges....with a little of the white ink and
a paper towel. Buttons, Want2Scrap bling, twine,
and it's done.
I know I'll be trying this technique more, hope
you are inspired to give it a try!
