Countdown to Valentine's Day - Day 12: Chalkboard Technique



This one is getting in just under the wire! We're almost there - thanks for counting down to Valentine's Day with me! Today's project is not only my countdown project, but it also works for two challenges - Mojo Monday and the Heart 2 Heart Challenges Love Is in the Air challenge. 



I tried the trendy chalkboard technique. I used the CTMH Chalkboard paper (12 x 12) and White Daisy pigment ink to stamp the sentiments. I used the heat gun to set the ink a little, but I also wanted some smudges to look like erased chalk. (That's my story, at least - and I'm sticking to it!) I will definitely be trying this technique often.

    I adore this card! Every little detail from the acrylic flower to the chalkboard technique, the embossing and the seam binding are just PERFECT! You really hit it out of the ball park with this one girlfriend!

  4. Oh my! This card is breathtaking! Absolutely gorgeous! Such wonderful details. I attempted to join your Valentines linky, but only made it one time. Epic fail on my part. It was great seeing all of your creations though!
