Just Us Girls #188: A WHITE Technique!

IMG_0417

Ok, so seriously, this could be one of my fave cards!  This is my week as Challenge Hostess over at Just Us Girls and I'm challenging yall to use a white "medium" on your creation.  Now it can be white ink, white crayons, white chalk, white pastel pencils… it's just gotta be white!  Easy Peasy, huh?  Well it was until I realized my White Pigment pad had dried out and so did the refill bottle!!! Dang-Blasted!!  I knew I wanted to use the new Chalkboard Memories set co-designed by my gal Tobi Crawford so I decided to break out some VersaMark and White Embossing powder (if EP isn't a medium, it is now!;)).  I also stamped it on In The Navy blue cs (from Gina K) instead of black.

After getting everything embossed and pretty I took a #230 Pastel pencil and did some shading areound the images and then smudging with my finger.  I used the same pencil to add some initials inside the heart (yup, this is gonna be hubby's b-day card!).  I used From the Heart dies (from verve) for the red hearts on the "chalk board", the arrow is from the Arrow die (also from Verve).  Voila!!

  1. Great technique this week! Love the card! Always wanted to try this chalkboard technique, but I figure I write on them enough, I don’t need to create one! Hahaha
