Chalkboard ATC's

The Chalkboard style of stamping has been around for a little while now and it really suits a more focal image style of stamp as well as a great opportunity to use some quote or word stamps.  I love the simplicity of embossing with white powder and using white pigment ink to create the shadow effect around the stamp and then making your chalkboard dirty by sponging on more of the white pigment ink.  A white pencil adds some more detail or alternatively, you can use a little coloured pencil, either watercolour or normal pencils work equally as well!  A few samples for this last class for my Technique Book for this year.  Classes start again in January 2014.
"Rubber gloves"... (I've wanted to use
this quote for a while now!  lol)
"No Prince Charming"...
"Last Embrace"...  (this stamp is a little busier
than the previous two, I think I like a little
more chalkboard showing.)
Here's the last three samples from my previous class, Bleach & Faux Bleach.
"Medicated"... (Love these Stampotique girls!!!)
"Decompose"... (this is Faux Bleach using the paint
and you can see how much more the
Twinkling H2O's show up with
the paint acting as a base on the fish.)
I'll have more Chalkboard ATC's to post pictures of before Christmas.  Can't wait to see what the girls do with this particular technique!!!
