Second post for the day!
This time I'm taking part in the challenge on the new AAA cards Blog.
This is the card I'm entering into the challenge:
I heat-embossed my sentiment in white and used a Dew Drop Brilliance Platinum Planet inkpad to do the chalkboard effect. In the photo it looks much whiter than IRL. Tried to photograph it looking better, but it kept on shining very white, so I had to settle for these photo's.
Matted my chalkboard on a craft base and adhered to the card front on pop dots. Daisies cut with the 'Flower Trio & Leaf Trio' dies from MFT. Leaf stamp and die, as well as the 'Pennant Trim' die, from Verve.
Added my usual black rhinestones to round it off.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Thank you very much'
I had so much fun making my card for the challenge I made two more chalkboard cards:
Flower stamp and die from the 'Joyful Blooms' set by Verve. Used two bg stamps from Glitz on my chalkboard. Added some silver rhinestones for a finishing touch.
Again my chalkboard looks terribly white in the photo.
And my third card:
Used a piece of dp by SimpleStories as a bg. Leaf stamp from a local craft shop. Painted my leafs with crackle paint for a interesting finish. Added a twine bow and black rhinestones to finish it off.
I'm going to keep these cards till the end of the school year in December to give to the kids' teachers.
Thanks for spending time visiting me. I always appreciate your visits and comments.
Have a lovely day and hope to see you again soon!
