Inspiring Inkin' Challenge #18 - Technique

This fortnight's challenge over on my SU team's Inspiring Inkin' Challenge blog is to use the chalkboard technique. This technique is so simple yet so effective. All you need to do is stamp an image onto black or dark cardstock using either white craft ink or Versamark and then using chalk pastels, colour it in. The colours really do stand out again the dark background. 

Here's my card, made for another triple selection of challenges:

This is for our challenge - using the chalkboard technique; the sketch challenge #262 on Splitcoast Stampers and the Just Us Girls challenge #15 - to use stitching on a card.


Stamps: Whimsical Wings (Level 2 hostess set)

Papers: Pink Passion, Only Orange, Basic Black, Kaleidoscope DSP

Inks: Whisper White craft ink, Stampin' Pastels

Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Orange embroidery thread


  1. Beautiful card Vannessa! Your chalkboard image looks wonderful as does your orange stitching. Thank you for playing along with Just Us Girls! Hope to see you Saturday!

  2. Love your "chalkboard" that is such a fun technique. And your stitching is fab. Thanks for playing along with JUGS.
