Chalkboard Blessing


Today is PTI’s blog Hop. And this is the inspiration:

I started my card as soon as the inspiration was posted (a first for me, I think!). I knew right away what I wanted to do – and I needed lots of time!

Chalkboard Blessing - by karen @ carefree creations

This card is for my wonderful husband. I started by white embossing the main sentiment. Then I used white pigment ink to stamp the other words as well as the leaves. I set it aside to dry. After it was dry, I sponged white ink around the main sentiment. More drying time. I used colored pencils to color the leaves.

I finished off the card with some felt acorns and various fibers.

Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. I love that you white embossed the main part of your sentiment and made it stand out! The leaves are beautiful and the wood grain frame is perfect!

  2. Oooo this is very pretty, Karen. I really like how you colored the leaves. I’m going to try that. I think you could play that one over at AAA Cards Autumn Colors challenge too?

  3. Lovely, lovely card Karen! Love the highlighted sentiment in the center and the colorful leaves surrounding it all…your husband will love it!! :0)

  4. This is perfectly executed, Karen, and love your felt acorns also. Great take on the challenge!

  5. Such a clever way to use sentiment stamps Karen – love how you’ve made the main sentiment stand out…it looks amazing. The felt acorns give it such a warm feel too!
