I started by black embossing the Chalkboard onto white card stock, then used a brayer and a melon rainbow ink pad to roll on the colors. I think it’s a great way to get a lot of color with very little effort. I also like how it reminds me of some of those restaurant chalkboards written with the neon chalk. I brayered another piece of white card stock and stamped the Honeycomb Background on top. With the big, bold solid centerpiece image, I wanted a more open image for the background so the honeycomb really fit the bill. After black embossing a smaller white piece with the Antique Labels Designs and Happy Birthday sentiment, I die cut it using the matching Antique Label die. I left the die in place and since it’s a much smaller piece, I sponged on the ink. I added a white layer behind the chalkboard, a yellow bow and my 4.25 x 5.50 card was finished.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
