But today, the Just Us Girls team has a fabulous challenge that I had never tried before. Kristin chose the chalkboard technique. You can find it here on the SCS Resources section. It's sooo easy to do (once you decide on a stamp to use, which is always my dilemma!). Here's my first try at it.The set I used is called Flourish Snowman from Darcie's. I picked it up at a stamp show over the summer. I inked this tree in a pigment white ink on black cardstock and then used SU chalks in Green Galore and Garden Green for the evergreens and Close to Cocoa for the trunk of the tree. The two greens gave it more dimension. I used SU's retired Holiday Treasures dp (love that dp!) and some sheer swiss dot black ribbon. There are two metal dots in the bottom corner. NO SPARKLE on this card! I tried, believe me! LOL! (I'm looking at this card as I type, and see that the green dp is much richer in color than in the picture. It looks very washed out here, but it's more olive in color. Hmmm....)
I hope you stop by the JUGs blog and see what the other girls have done and then play along! This is really a cool technique! Here is a list of the girls' personal blogs...they'd love to see some comments from you, too!
