I have never entered the Merry Monday challenge before but I wanted to do the chalkboard technique. I did it once before for another challenge here and thought it was worth trying again.
This one is rather simple but you can't call the chalkboard technique "clean" can you? I used the Tipped Toppers from PTI to cut the background papers. The wreath and sentiment are from PTI's Wreath for All Seasons.
This next one is for PTI's Make it Monday - modern whimsy style. If you don't know what that is, Danielle Flanders has a great video showing you all about it. I hadn't heard of it but I LOVE it. I will definitely be trying it again.
The star border at the bottom is from SSS Holiday borders and stamped in Faded Jeans Distress Ink. The star garland is from PTI's garland die out of some silver paper I had. I think it was some kind of packing paper. The Joy is from their Joy stamp and die set. I cut two layers of cardboard and a layer of blue paper to thicken the word, and then stamped and embossed in silver the rest of the sentiment from the set. A little silver ribbon and my whimsical card is done. Here is a close up so you can see more detail.
Thanks for stopping by today. Please leave a comment to let me know you were here. I love reading them.
I love your cards...the chalkboard technique is awesome Bobby. Can't wait to see pictures of the Nutcracker. I'm sure it will be amazing!ReplyDelete
Both of these cards are lovely, Bobby! I love the way you've done the chalkboard and that layout is fabulous! Love that collage look too! Thanks for sharing these with us at Merry Monday!ReplyDelete
Bobbie, both of your cards are fantastic. You rocked the chalkboard technique. I think I love this card because of the tipped top dies you used. LOVE them. Looking forward to seeing the pictures of the Nutcracker too. Thank you for joining us at Merry Monday!!!ReplyDelete
I love your very modern layout Bobby. Your Chalkboard looks so realistic. Like your Make It Monday card too. Thank you so much for joining us at Merry Monday.ReplyDelete
Great angles, Bobby! The chalkboard isn't clean, but it still has the overall feel of a CAS card to me (I tend to be more liberal in interpretation). AND, your modern whimsy card is really wonderful! You should definitely try some more in that style. The layout is similar to the current Fusion challenge ... you should link it up!ReplyDelete
Lovely streamers and banners! The silver stars are icing on the cake. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
Two fabulous cards today. I really like how you did the chalkboard on that first card with the interesting angles. I'll look forward to your Nutcracker pictures tomorrow. How exciting for your granddaughter.ReplyDelete
