Sunny Challenge 31

March 11, 2012

This week at Sunny Challenges and Creations I have set a sketch and technique challenge.  I thought I should dust off my Pastels and try a little Chalkboarding.  This is really quite a simple technique.  You just need to stamp onto dark card stock using White or Vanilla craft ink.  Then you use a sponge dauber or the little sponges that are supplied in the Stampin’ Pastels and add colour to the craft ink.

I cut the largest oval on the Ovals Originals Die from Basic Black card stock.  I stamped onto the oval using Whisper White ink and the images from the Cottage Garden stampset.   I coloured the largest flower using Rich Razzleberry chalk, the stem using Old Olive chalk and the small flowers using Real Red Chalk from my Stampin’ Pastels.  I set this piece aside for a while to let the Craft ink dry and then used a tissue to remove the any excess chalk.  I cut a strip the length of Old Olive card stock and punched one long edge using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.   I snipped the long unpunched edge, added Snail to the back of the oval and attached the punched piece around the edge to create a frame.   I cut two pieces of Rich Razzleberry Designer Paper from the Brights Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack.  I wrapped a large Rhinestone Brad around a length of Old Olive 5/8″ Satin Ribbon and then attached the ends of the ribbon to the back of one of the pieces of Designer Series Paper.  I pierced three holes using my Mat Pack and Paper Piercer on the other piece of Designer paper and inserted three small Rhinestone Brads.  The two pieces of Designer Paper were then attached to a piece of Whisper White card stock and then to scored and folded Old Olive card stock.  Lastly I attached my image panel to the card front using dimensionals.

I hope that you are going to give this simple technique a try.  If you need some more instruction then you can find a great tutorial HERE at Splitcoast Stampers.  You can also find more inspiration if you visit Vicky and Libby.  Once you have your card, scrapbook page or 3d item completed, then pop back to Sunny Challenges and Creations and add it to Mr. Linky.  I look forward to seeing what you create this week.

Bye for now, Kris.

    Really lovely, Kris. I love your use of colour on this card; I really must use Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive more – a beautiful combination.
