Chalkboard Technique

Ok, I am so loving this technique. I scoped SCS and found so many inspiring pieces of work. These are inspired by the many creative and talented gals from the gallery.Thought I would try recreating some of them with CTMH products.

TUTORIAL:

1. Use white daisy pigment stamp pad and stamp playful petals and celebrate life onto black CS
2. Using sponge daubers, make up applicators or q-tips gently daub summer chalks on top of the white image until it is covered
3. Use a paper piercer to poke holes around the flower petals and then mount on to watermelon CS
4. Mount onto citrus leaf CS

Ok now you try and let us see what you come up with. Post a link to your creation and I'll post it here!!! Here's another one


Supplies: all CTMH unless noted

Paper: pink carnation, citrus leaf, black cs
Stamps: rustic flowers, playful flourishes, for every occasion
Ink: pink carnation, black
Accesories: flower metal rimmed tag, sparkles, white daisy waxy flax
Other: American crafts ribbon, CB swiss dots embossing folder
