Hello everyone! It’s been a while! I was dealing with some health and family issues so I stayed away from blog posting. I’m glad to be back! 🙂
I was going through my old supplies recently, and found a white pastel stick. Since pastel smudged pretty well on the black paper, I decided to try the chalkboard look with the it, and I’m quite happy how this card turned out! 🙂
I used “Happiest Peonies” from The Ton, one of my favorite stamps.
Here is the card!
I first stamped the peonies image on a 110lb black cardstock with white pigment ink from Simon Says Stamps. Then I stamped the sentiment with Versamark embossing ink and heat embossed in white. I heat embossed the sentiment so it doesn’t fade when I smudge the pastel on top. I waited the white ink to dry and colored in highlights with white Prismacolor color pencil. Then I applied white pastel stick here and there, mainly outer crevices of the image, and I smudged the pastel with fingers. I also splattered white dropplets (white color from Gansai Tambi watercolor). When the ink dried completely, I trimmed the panel down to 4″x5.25″, distressed the edges, and adhered black fun foam behind it. On the black A2 size cardbase, I adhered blue denim cardstock (trimmed slightly smaller than the cardbase), and mounted the panel on top. I finished the card off by adding some sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and tied jute twine on top.
Here are couple of close-ups!
That’s it for today! Thank you for visiting and have an awesome day!!!
