Chalkboard Technique

This month we’re doing Stamping Techniques To Try is the Chalkboard Technique. You’ll love this quick and easy but effective technique.

I’ve basically used the same stamp set for each card. I changed the technique on each card and will explain as I go

What You Will Need

NOTE

In the South Pacific the Whisper White Craft Stampin’ Pad comes uninked due to leakage of the ink during the heat and humidity So make sure you ink the pad up well with the reinker provided and use the back of a plastic spoon to knead the ink into the pad

Make sure you visit all the blogs on the hop to see all the Design Team inspiration and get all their tips and tricks

Tips

  • Use some scrap Basic Black card and have a play with all the techniques you read about today
  • Ensure the Whisper White Craft Stampin’ Pad is completely dry before doing anything else to your card front
  • Use different colouring mediums – Watercolor Pencils, Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Write Markers

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.
