Hi all and happy weekend,
It seems like I have been away from my craft room for a month, but in reality, it's only been a couple of weeks. After work yesterday, my one goal was to stamp!
I'm loving the current trendy "chalkboard" or "subway" look and decided to try it out. I have to say it was a really fun process and I'm quite pleased with how my card turned out. The layout is the current Mojo Monday 274 sketch, stamps are from Taylored Expressions and the papers from Pebbles Walnut Grove 6 x 6 pack.
The stamp set is called Much Appreciated and it contains several "thank you" stamps, as well as some flowers and hearts. I started with the largest Thank You stamp and built my panel by stamping the other stamps in the set around it. I used SU craft whisper white ink and some really old white EP. After I finished stamping and embossing, I used a sponge dauber and lightly sponged the craft whisper white ink around the black panels. A red colored pencil was used to color the inside of the flowers, outline the bottom of the hearts and color the center of one of the large hearts. I put a red rhinestone heart in the center of the large heart on the ribbon. Finally, stitching around the circle element and the rest of the card finishes it.
I will definitely be playing with this technique again. So much fun and creative!
