Inspiringinkin challenge chalkboard techniques

Hi there

I have had a go at the challenge set by the inspiringinkin team to design a project using the chalkboard technique. The set challenge can be found at http://www.inspiringinkinchallenges.blogspot.com Its the first time I have used my stampin pastels but I am quite pleased with my first attempt. I am going to have another go using some different colours but as Amanda said the colours really do pop against the dark background.

I have used Pink passion as the card base with panels of pixie pink and black. Each of the cardstock pieces have been decorated with the eyelet border punch. ( I think this gives a really pretty effect). The ribbon is called very vanilla.

I have stamped the black cardstock with whisper white ink and then used my pastels (pink passion) to colour in using a dauber. Be brave this is so simple...
The inside of the card has been lined with whisper white and then stamped with pixie pink ink as you can see in the photograph. All the stamped flowers have come from the greenhouse garden set.

Hope you like the card. I will hopefully post another creation tomorrow.


  1. Hi Caroline, Lovely to talk to you today, that is a lovely card, thank you for joining in with the team challenge x

  2. Wow, Caroline, that is lovely. You are right the colours look great against the black. It's nice to see the bold brights used, as not many people are brave enough!!!!

  3. This is a gorgeous card Caroline and the colours are fab. that stamp set works so well with this technique. Thank you for joining in the Inspiring Inkin challenge :)
