I'm in the craft room early this morning as he was snoring so loudly - no, not OH but Buddy!
The girls at Daring Cardmakers have asked us to pay homage to the chalkboard this week. This is my first attempt at doing the Chalkboard technique and I quite enjoyed it. I've followed the tutorial by Betsy Veldman recommended by them. My first attempt didn't quite work - what I though was white powder turned out to be clear! I think I'll be adding some Pan Pastels to that one. I thought the wording on the Amazing Family set by Stampin Up would be perfect for this. I've also used one of the cars from a Tim Holtz set called The Journey. I've stamped them all in Versamark and embossed with WOW Opaque Bright White powder then overstamped with Ink It Up white ink with an Inkssentials white pen around the image. I didn't have any suitable backing papers so I've used the rest of the Tim Holtz set to make my own, stamping with black Versafine. I must say that I do like this technique and it's not as frightening as it first seems once you get going. I was also surprised how quickly it came together but it is a very forgiving technique
