Chalkboard technique


I had so much fun watching this card come to life. This is such a easy and fun way to use your Stampin' Pastels (Chalk). I think that the dark background is so amazing it makes the color pop right if the page and not be to bold at the same time. I was inspired by a tutorial I saw on Beate's blog which she wrote for splitcoaststampers. I demo-ed this card at clubs and my girls have loved it. I would love you all too give it a try and post a link to your card in my comments so myself and others can see how much fun you had with this technique.

Stamp recipe:
Stamp set: True Friend
Ink Versamark, White Craft Ink Stampin'Up
Pattern Paper: East Coast Pep Stampin'Up
Card Stock: Blue Bayou, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip.
Ribbon: Blue Bayou double stiched
Brads: Making Memories
Misc: Stampin" Pastels, Mat Pack and paper piercing tool. ATG Gun.
