Write It On The Board
Topic: Stamping

I've been seeing cards all over the net with what is called the 'chalkboard technique'. I wanted to have a go at it myself and finally made some time for it.

Multiple images and sentiments are stamped on black cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed with white powder. Then some whitish chalk ink is lightly smeared onto the background to look like chalk dust. I used a white gel pen to add some doodling and some border lines. Colored pencils were lightly applied over selected areas and the piece was trimmed out. I had some black photo corners on hand so added these on all the chalkboards.

I used the same stamp combination on three pieces of cardstock and then mounted them on different color combinations of card base and chevron paper.

On the blue one I added accents of shaped rhinestones (using glue dots) and doodled in some borders and a bunch of dragonflies with black Sharpie. The dragonflies were colored in with white gel pen and over-colored with blue colored pencil.


I did a version in yellow and orange and added colored rhinestones throughout. Three paper flags were added to the right and each of these got rhinestones as well. I used the Sharpie to add doodles in the chevron paper.


Finally, I made a pink and purple combo. Shaped rhinestones, colored paper flags and some clear acrylic hearts are the accents. Sharpie doodling on the chevron paper is the finishing touch.


 

It is definitely a different style for me. I might try it again some time but I can't see doing it a lot. On the other hand, now I can check that off my to-do list.
