Hello, and Happy New Year to you all!
I'm starting 2013 off with something new - a new technique!
Sometimes in life events happen that FORCE you into action. :-) A couple of days ago, I was carefully examining some cards - one by Meredith MacRitchie and the others by Betsy Veldman. The particular posts I was looking at were using the Chalkboard technique. I pinned these posts and decided I would do something like this one day. Well, today I found that Make It Monday over at Papertrey Ink is all about the chalkboard technique this week, with another tutorial by the fabulous Betsy! That was all the prodding I needed, so I sat down to experiment.
My first effort isn't exactly what I was looking for, but it DOES look like a chalkboard, and I am confident that with some practice, I will be able to do better. I quite like this technique, despite the "messy" feeling when creating the card using it!
This is my card.
I used PTI Strawberry Patch , Strawberry Patch Sentiments, and Embellishments. Colours are SU! Real Red, Black, and PTI Basic White. Ink is PTI Fresh Snow and Versamark. Pencils are Derwent Inktense.
Thanks for coming by to visit!
