Hello and thanks for visiting!
Today's card is a fun technique inspired by a few things. First, last weeks challenge at #tgifc379 - Back to School theme - 'cause back to school for me meant colouring on chalkboards. I love chalk art and yes I'm dating myself when I say I cleaned the chalkboard brushes at lunch for the teacher so I could stay in and use the colour chalks! Anybody else remember those days - ha! I couldn't participate last week but the chalkboard theme carried over in my head to this weeks #tgifc380 Color Challenge.
2. The Global Design Project #355 Theme Challenge - Animals inspired me to use the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set, #159921 & Hippo Dies, #159928 Free during Sale-A-Bration. Please click the hyperlinks to visit the blogs and enjoy the inspiration!
Assembly & Trix
***Trix, to get a chalkboard look, blend White Craft Stampin' Ink, #147277 on Basic Black cardstock with a Blending Brush. This 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 chalkboard is adhered to a piece of Perfectly Penciled DSP, #159244 an 1/8 of an inch bigger.
* Stamp the hippo and flowers with White Craft Ink and allow to dry. The flowers are from the Lovely You Stamp Set, #152525 ***Trix, colour the flowers with Watercolor Pencils to get the coloured chalk look. I used Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo & Bermuda Bay, all colours in the Assortment 1 pack, #141709 .
* Stamp the sentiment with White Craft Ink on a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and adhere with dimensionals.
* Adhere the stamped chalkboard layer to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Bermuda Bay card base. I chose to emboss the card base with the retired Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder just for a bit of interest.
