Faux-Chalkboard Birthday Card
Hello friends , Today I have a faux-chalkboard card to share.I love this technique very much and when I saw this month's Mudra Challenge ,I knew I am not going to miss it :)
SO here I am with a birthday card.Started by heat Embossing the sentiment in white.Then stamped the Dainty blooms,and few additional flowers around it with white pigment ink.Both the stamps are from Mudra Crafts Stamps.
I tried many options for coloring but none of them poped on black ,so went for acrylic paints (layers of it !).Used color pencils for highlights and shadows. As I wanted the focus to be on the chalkboard look ,kept it simple ,just layering over a light pink cardstock. If you are wondering how come the black looks so black ,I have blended some archival black ink around the edges.Made a matching envelope.
Hope you liked the card and give this technique a try ! Thank you for visiting :)
