Chalkboard with a Flourish- Two Challenges in One!
Hi Again Stampers!
Wow- this may be a first for me (three posts in one day :))! I wanted to create a card using the CQC184 ColourQ Challenge along with the Create with Connie and Mary CCMC247 Sketch Challenge. Again, if you have the time, check out both sites for wonderful inspiration!
To create this card:
Use the Embossing Buddy® to de-static a piece of Basic Black cardstock and stamp the image from Flowering Flourishes using Versamark™ ink. Apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.
Once cooled, softly sponge White Craft ink over the image to give the appearance of erased chalk, color over the embossing with SU! Metallic Pencils and add shadows with the White Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencil.
Use the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch on a piece of Going Grey DSP to create the border in the sketch and adhere to the back of the panel.
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Vellum with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and adhere to the Blushing Bride layer using Two-Way Glue.
Mount the embossed Blushing Bride layer onto Basic Black cardstock and add the focal image with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Create the rolled flowers using the 1 1/4” and 7/8” Scallop Circle Punches (just punch the scallops out of the Blushing Bride and Whisper White cardstock, cut wavy spirals using Paper Snips along the edges and spiraling towards the center, roll from the outside towards the center and adhere to the small piece of cardstock in the middle) - see the Splitcoaststampers’ tutorial here.
Add the Vellum sentiment banner and Pearls to finish off the card.
