Make It Monday #98: Chalkboard Techinque

Its time for another MIM this week. I've been wanting to try this technique ever since I saw Betsy made a card in her blog few weeks back... he he he. I guess its time to try it for myself, I must say I really like this technique different and unique!

For the base of my card just used vintage cream cardstock and cover it with wood grain paper from Crate Paper. First I stamped sentiment from Table Service then used my Signo Uni-ball broad pen to draw a line at the bottom of my first sentiment, then the second sentiment was from Movers & Shakers. At the bottom of that you see the dotted lines from Button Boutique. The rest for the sentiments I used was from Pretty Peonies and Party Poppers. I also used the plate and piece of cake stamp from Table service. I just added a flower piecing from an old paper line of My Minds Eye to add a little color to my card. I also added border lines using gold Gelly roll pen from Sakura. 

I added a background stamp image on my card using Pretty Peonies just to add a little something on my card, hopefully you can see it on my picture. You can also see here that I also used gold embossing powder incorporated on my card for added drama so to speak, I really like how it turned out don't you think?

Thank you for looking!
Enjoy the rest of the week
May you all have a very Blessed and Happy NEW YEAR!



  1. Beautiful! Love how you used some color too!

  2. Love how you edged all the sentiments into segments - the touch of color is perfect!

  3. So glad you suggested the dotted lines. They look great. Love the shadowing with peony stam too!

  4. Wow this is a beautiful card! I am amazed at how detailed everyone is making the chalkboards This looks like a work of art!
