Chalkboard Technique

I've been wanting to try my hand at the chalkboard technique for some time now.
Since my niece invited me over for an afternoon of cardmaking (yesterday) I finally got a chance to.
(BTW- I made lots of scalloped square cards while there -- you'll be seeing more of them this week!)
There are two great tutorials for this look
You can also view my Pinterest Board for more inspiration.
I embossed the bike and sentiment and then added a "pop" of color by coloring "Faith" w/watercolor markers and reheating to set.
Supplies used:
  • Kraft Cardstock
  • Scallop Square Nestabilities
  • World Travels stamp set
  • White Embossing Powder
  • White Pigment Ink

I have yet to give this a try...love your take. The bicycle is adorable!
Took a look at the dishcloths as well, good for you! I love those kind but alas I think I am untrainable when it comes to crocheting or knitting, lol. Love the yellow and blue.
Have a good day....

Oh me too but I haven't got round to it yet. Love your samples though, especially the pop of colour - really nice. I envy you having someone to craft with - I'm really missing my craft group which starts up again next Saturday - yippee.
