Chalkboard Technique – My First Attempt

Another project I designed for my Artisan Design Team application was a card where I attempted my first “chalkboard” technique.  I’m not sure I should have included my first try at a technique with my submission but …


If I had a chance to do this one over, I would have used a different approach to get the chalkboard look (involves white craft stamp pad and sponge daubers).  The version of the technique I used here was using the Embossing Buddy to make the black card stock look chalky.  Didn’t turn out as I had hoped.  But as they say, practice makes perfect so you should expect to see me try this technique again soon – especially with all the new stamp sets that have chalky images.

Here are the supplies that I used to create this card:

Card stock:  Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Rose Red, Whisper White
Classic Stampin’ Pads:  Rose Red, Versa Mark
Stamp Sets:  Bloomin’ Marvelous, Itty Bitty Bits, Amazing Family, Oh, Hello
Tools:  Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, ½” Circle Punch, Stampin’ Trimmer, Paper Snips, Craft Scissors, Bone Folder, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool
Other Supplies:  Snail Adhesive, Mini Glue Dots, 2-Way Glue Pen, Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon, Natural Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper, White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Water Color Pencil, Silver Soda Pop Tops, Ruler, Crumb Cake Medium Envelope

Have you tried this technique yet?  I’d like to see what you have designed if you would care to share them with me!

Thanks again for stopping by.  I hope you had a great weekend.

Until next time, stamp on my friends,
