Chalkboard Technique

 Hello-  Today I thought I'd share the card I did with my technique class in February-I know it's almost March but the is crazy weather has my rhythm off.  I've been dying to do a Chalkboard card but I struggled with how to make it special and cool.  Then I saw the Challboard in the Spring Occasions book and and I got the idea to add the little banners.  I added the little bows on the end I didn't bother trying to string the banners-a little dab of Tombo glue and I was good to go.  The Paper is Sale-a-bration's Sweet Sorbet. 
   We lost the electricity right in the middle of this class funny since it is the only time during the whole storm that we did-one of the Ladies coined the phrase craftastrafy- others were out of electric for 5 or more days so I have zero complaint!
Chalkboard Card-A chalkboard card requires black card stock, white ink that stamps opaque and a white opaque marker images should be stamped white on black, traced out with doodles either stamped or drawn or both and a sponge should be used to add stippling and smudges to simulate a chalk board. 
The panel will look more realistic if you add a neutral layer to simulate a wooden frame.  If you use white craft ink you may need to heat set ink with heat gun.

those are the instruction I made for the technique.  Thanks for stopping by!
