AAA Cards Challenge 4 – Create! Part 3 or third time’s the charm!
Have you ever had one of those days when you do everything wrong? Well I certainly did. I joined a great new challenge blog called AAA Card Challenge. This week’s challenge was “Create” but I never noticed the big “hint” Chalkboard! It was clearly written in Bold lettering, but my creative mind never got past the word Create! Sometimes I am such a numpy! Thankfully our host allows up to three entries, so I went back to the blackboard, literally, and made a new card more conducive to the theme.
I have never used the blackboard/chalk technique before but decided this card screamed it’s use. I used two stamps from MTF – Pure Innocence It’s a Sign & My Favorite Sentiments plus dies – BG Wood Planks, and the Papertrey Ink – Woodgrain Impression Plate. I coloured the word Heart with Copics to make the ART pop, and added a puffy heart from Doodlebug Designs. I added a piece of chalk and an eraser I cut out of scrap paper to add to the chalkboard ledge.
Note: It wasn’t until I took the photo of my card on my deck that I realized just how much the chalkboard “frame” I made with the die, texture plate and kraft paper looks like a real wooden frame – cool!
UPDATE: I am glad I remade my card and re-entered this card into the AAA challenge, because I was named as the challenge winner! They have posted next week’s challenge “play” and feature a cat in the inspiration photo. While I am a dog person, I have a number of cute cat stamps I can’t wait to try.
