Chalkboard Technique using Stampin’ Pastels

This month our Art with Heart Team Forum Technique Challenge is to make something using the Chalkboard Technique.

I looked at the suggested video by Dawn Griffiths. I think I had seen it before. I just LOVE Dawn. She is the person that first introduced me to Stampin' Up! (via the interent). Here is the link to her video.

 Anyway – I hadn't actually tried this please take that into consideration when looking at the two cards below. I used the Pick a Petal and Vintage Vogue stamp sets, Whisper White Craft Ink and of course, my Stampin' Pastels.

For this one, I don't think I had quite enough ink on my stamp..... and I think it's a pretty plain card, but then I was focusing on the technique....(please excuse the slant of the card - it is straight... it's what the card is resting on that is a problem. I really need to do something about setting up a good place to take photos of wha I make!)

I much prefer my second card, even though the colours aren't nearly as vibrant as the first. The detailed stamp design meant it was difficult to rub out the chalk around the stamped image, so I ended up rubbing it out all over..... and I was quite happy with the effect.

 What do you think? Leave a comment and let me know. I love getting comments on my posts cause then I know someone is actually reading them!

This was an easy technique, but the rubbing out was a bit time consuming..... but when you get in that crafting zone you don't really notice the time do you?

Hope you like it. Perhaps you'd like to try it yourself. If you do, send me a picture and I'll post it on my blog so others can see how truly talented you are!

Till next time.
