I should just call todays additions "Ode to Jen". I saw her Chalkboard Technique card and thought hey that's pretty. So here is mine.
This is easy and pretty, it looks much better in real life as i used glitter chalks. (Ohhhhh sparkly)
For this you need black card stock, white craft pad, chalks (I kan'dee pearlescent chalksby Pebbles inc.) dauber and soft brush.
A bold image 2 step stampin set works best for this as you need the outline stamp. It's easy, stamp away on your black card. Then daub the chalk on, carefully brush away excess. Stamp the outline stamp on top and you are done.
I then used a clear over lay, with finest flourishes and cherish stamps. I used clear ep to set the white craft ink. I then attached everything using brads. I used my fave colour combo of rose red and regal rose to mat the chalked image.
Thanks Jen for inspiring me.
Special thanks to Dorinda, who made my water mark for me. I love it and hope to be able to use it in a quicker fashion soon. I can dream can't I?
