Chalkboard Technique – Colour Palette #34

Colour Palette #34 has a real traditional Christmas feel to it and I think I managed to use all 4 colours fairly equally on this card. I’ve got my gingerbread man from the Sending Cheer bundle featuring again, this time using it in a more vintage style card.

For the background I used the Chalboard technique which uses White Craft ink on an embossed panel. I used the Christmas Tidings Embossing Folder which has a number of sentiments and images which you can separate to embellish cards as well.

The little heart buttons are some of our new Adhesive Backed Hearts & Flowers Embellishments from the January – April Mini catalogue. If you live in Australia and would like a copy, you can request one HERE.

A Chalkboard Christmas

Many of us have grown up with chalkboards during our schooling and the screeching sound of chalk against the chalkboard is one we’d rather forget! Today’s #30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge is a Chalkboard Christmas. Although, there are alternate ways to interpret this, I went with the traditional black chalkboard.

Heat embossing the sentiment from Wrapped in Christmas helped it to stand out against the black whilst still creating the chalkboard effect.

I used the Whisper White ink pad to add some chalk dust on my Chalkboard.

I also used this ink to go over the embossing on my card base which added to the chalk feel of the card.

The reindeer was heat embossed in White on Crumb Cake cardstock. I then coloured it in completely with the Whisper White Watercolour pencil. Then I went over parts of the image with Early Espresso and a touch of Daffodil Delight. I added a panel of plaid paper from Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper behind my layered chalkboard. I love the Christmas feel it gives.

The sprig of leaves was stamped in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White cardstock which I coloured in Old Olive, Basic Gray and Whisper White Watercolour pencils. Then I used the Basic Black pencil to fill in all the white space to resemble the chalkboard look. Finally, I added Whisper White ink with a sponge dauber to soften the edges which coordinated with my chalkboard sentiment.
