Chalkboard Mojo

Hi everyone.

A new week and a new sketch by Julee on the Mojo Monday Blog.  This week Julee has given us a lovely CAS sketch to work with.

For the first time I've tried my hand at a chalkboard effect!  All that I've done is to heat emboss my image with white embossing powder and then added a bit of white shading with my finger and a DewDrop Brilliance (Platinum Planet) inkpad.  This is also the first time I have used such a lot of black on a card.  Anyway, here's my card:

 
 
and this is Julee's sketch:
 
 
The small pieces of dp I've used are form We R Memory Keepers.
The stamps are all from Verve's Plain Jane range (VSPJ-0077, VS-09-PJ016) and the Borderline set.
 
Time to be off to fetch my eldest son from school!  They're busy with exams and school closes an hour earlier, at 1pm.
 
Thanks for visiting and have a lovely week!  I always appreciate comments!!
 
Kind regards
Petra

What a striking and handsome card, Petra! The effect with the white around the sentiment adds so much as does the two lovely dp strips and flower.

By the way ... thank you so much for commenting on my blog and becoming my 100th member!

The black is very effective Petra. Like that shading you've done too. A stunning creation once again. hugs Sharon x
