Chalkboard technique using acrylic paint
May has been a busy month for me. I did not post so much but I did craft a lot, travelled and just had fun! My sister is leaving Delhi next month and I thought I'd make a card for her. And I wanted to try out something different with the Chalkboard technique which is up for a challenge at Mudra Craft Stamps.
Sooo, I made this card using their Daisy Blooms set, which is actually a layering stamp set. But I used only the outlines ones. The most amazing part is that there are 3 different sets of outlines, so you can get a variety of flowers! Here is the card I made:
I really like how the cluster of flowers turned out!
Steps I followed for this card:
1. Stamped the flower and leaves outlines using white pigment ink to create this cluster.
2. Using acrylic paints in metallic/pearlescent colours, I painted all the flowers and leaves. I used the same type of golden colour to paint the outlines of the flowers (which was stamped with white). This is because I wanted the colours to have continuity and also, white was really light!
3. I added some splatters using the same golden paint.
4. Finally, I white embossed the sentiment, and using foam tape, attached my panel to a golden card base.
I am yet to learn to click better pics of the cards I make! Here's another look at it:
You will notice how the white highlights I added to the flowers are not so visible. That's because of the camera angle, and the metallic lustre that the flowers have!
I hope you got some ideas and if you have any questions, please ask them in the comments below or mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I encourage you to try out the fantastic Mudra stamps and participate in their innovative challenge for this month!
