Just Us Girls Technique Challenge...JUGS11 38

Mona Pendleton | Friday, December 11, 2009 @ 10:01 PM | ,

Hi Ladies! Thanks so much for all of you who were able to play along with Pam's sketch challenge last week! It is really fun to see what so many do differently with the same sketch, technique or color combo. This week, Kristin is our darling Hostess who chose the Chalkboard Technique for us all to play with! Here is my card using this super fun technique:I have to admit, I have never tried the Chalkboard Technique before making this card. Now, it has become one of my favorite techniques! Thank you Kristin :) Beate over at Splitcoaststampers offers a wonderful, easy to follow tutorial. I inked up the PTI polk a dot tea pot image from the Tea for Two set with SU Craft white ink, then sponged on first a light blue chalk, then followed with a teal color. After cutting out the stamped & chalked image, I sprayed it with a light mist of hairspay to "set" the chalk so it wouldn't rub off. I am totally in love with the soft, vintage outcome with the chalkboard technique. I randomly stamped a few flower images with SU Brocade Blue ink on the BINGO DP. The teapot is sitting on a few layers: the first is a piece of K&Company DP that I cut out using an oval Spellbinder's die & the very bottom is a piece of PTI Kraft paper cut using a Spellbinder's Labels 4 die.

For color inspiration, I referred to Samantha's Beautiful Color Combo #27 from Scrapmaster's Paradise, SPCC27. Samantha hosts weekly color challenges for all of us papercrafters to play along with & the Design Team offers some beautiful samples for inspiration! There you have it! So get out your chalks & let the fun begin! For complete details, please visit the Just Us Girls challenge site & be sure to visit ALL the DT girls blogs to see how they created their project! Thanks for looking! Be Sweet! We look forward to seeing what you can do with the Chalkboard Technique!

****On a side note: In case you haven't heard the news, Pam, my Just Us Girls team mate has been featured on the cover of Gina K's Holiday Treats Design Team Cookbook! Who knew she was as great a baker as she is a paper-crafter?! Please visit Pam's blog &/or Gina K's & show my dear friend Pam some love & while you are there, be sure to check out what all the other gals created as well!
