Loves Rubberstamps:A Chalkboard Card: Smile!


Hello and Happy Saturday!  I have a fun chalkboard card to share with you all today!

Here is my card...


So last month, I tried the chalk technique for the first time.  I have always admired the "Chalk" projects and love the look of them.  I was definitely inspired by what I was seeing on you tube videos and out there in Blog Land and thought I would be brave to try out this technique!  Well after my first chalkboard creation, I just had to make another one.   This time I used the adorable "Boho Anya"!   I stamped her in some white ink and then I took a baby wipe and smudged some white ink around the black card stock to give it that chalkboard look. I don't think it shows too well in my photo but it's a pretty cool effect!  I masked my image and then I added some stamped flowers around her in some pink chalk ink.   The pretty papers which came out of my hoard vault for this card are from a collection called "The Optimist" by Prima.  These papers are so gorgeous and I thought they added some pretty color to the black and white.  To finish it off, I added a pink ribbon from my stash and some random Recollection pearls.

Here is a close up...


Here are the Supplies Used:
Boho Anya - The Greeting Farm
The Optimist - Prima
 Victorian Velvet - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Moonlight White - Brilliance

Be sure to stop by the Loves Rubberstamps store to see the items used on my card.  I hope you enjoyed my chalkboard card.  I had so much fun making it and I hope you'll give it a try too!  Enjoy your Saturday and see you back for the "Sensational Sunday" Blog Hop tomorrow! :)

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
Marcy
