Chalkboard Technique with the Hippos for #GDP355 & #tgifc380

 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.
