I have been wanting to try the Chalkboard Technique ever since I've seen so many great examples in blogland. I used some of my Hero Arts sentiments that have a variety of fonts and placed them all on a clear block, and tried different arrangements until I found one I liked. Instead of embossing the words, I used a white Adrondack Snow Cap ink. After stamping, I went back and filled in a few spaces with flowers and hearts. To give the shadowy chalk effect, I used a white colored pencil right next to the stamped images, and made a little smear of "chalk" here and there.
This was so much fun to do, I will definitely be making more of these cards!
There is a great tutorial on Betsy Veldman's blog, Paper, Scissors, Superheroes.
Have you tried this yet? Let me know if you have, I've love to see what you made.
Lots of challenges are looking for you to try a new technique or use some new supplies. Join in the fun!
