Technique Time Tuesday: Faux Chalkboard

Hi, friends!  Ready for a new technique challenge?!  Good--we've got one for you over at Technique Time Tuesday!  This month we're focusing on the FAUX CHALKBOARD TECHNIQUE.  It's been around for a bit, but I've made a video tutorial for you to check out and hopefully you'll play along with us!

Here's my finished creation~

For these fabulous challenges~




I've used stamps by Papertrey ink (border), Inspired By Stamping (sentiment), and Close to My Heart (elemental stamping).  The glitter paper is by Colorbok, the rhinestones are from my stash, the white embossing powder is by Stampendous! and all other supplies are from Stampin' Up!.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!  I hope you'll play along with us this month--the technique is really not as hard as you'd think it would be!  Don't forget to check out the other amazing projects my super talented gals have for you as well!  HUGS and happy stamping! :)
