So Joan's challenge made me finally sit down and try to do it! You'll find all kinds of chalkboard cards in the SCS challenge gallery here.
If you look at Betsy's birthday sample - you'll see I pretty much copied it!! Using stamps that I had from Cas-ual Fridays Stamps and Taylored Expressions - I created this chalkboard card (well it's actually a 3"x4" tag type creation - it doesn't open)
First I stamped the sentiments with Versamark and embossed them in white. Then I stamped the banner over the HAPPY BIRTHDAY using Fresh Snow - I didn't get it quite centered over the sentiment so I added the pink heart gems to off set it! I cut off the side edges up to and around the banner ends so they stick out. Next I drew the framing lines with a white Prismacolor watercolor pencil and drew some red lines around NOISE and yeah BABY. I rubbed a little bit of Fresh Snow Ink around the edges and open spaces and finally added the ribbon and buttons with twine.
Pretty cool huh??!!
