Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! Today, I have a Thank You card for you, we all need these especially at this time of the year. As you all know the chalkboard effect is very trendy these days, so I decided to combine the chalkboard effect with a multi-inking technique.

Supplies:

  • Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko: Memento Luxe: Angel Pink, Rose Bud, Morocco, Love Letter; Brilliance Moonlight White, VersaMark, Brushstix, Fantastix, Craft Mat, Sponge Dauber
  • Avery Elle: “Petals and Stems” and ” Sending You” stamp sets
  • WOW!: Mandarin embossing powder
  • Miscellaneous: black cardstock, white cardstock,  white gel pen, glue dots

Directions:

1. Cut Black card stock 4.25 x 11 inches, fold in half. Stamp flowers onto scrap paper and cut out to use as mask.

2. Stamp leaves and berries onto the white panel, using the flower masks to guide the position. Let dry.

3. Using a Brushstix, color the berries with Memento Luxe Rose Bud by “dotting” over the berries. Let dry.

4. Once the berries are dry, use a white gel pen to create highlights.
