I was out making stamps and in between pressing the rubber I got to play a little bit – yeah. I love the latest chalkboard craze – or maybe it’s not a craze and I’m just now catching on. Either way, I thought wouldn’t it be fun to have a chalkboard background.
The card actually has a “faux” chalkboard background. I used black acrylic paint. After the paint dried I rubbed chalk all over it and wiped it off. I then drew the moon and added the corner details. I sprayed the card with clear spray so that the chalk would be permanent and not rub off. The card actually looked more “chalky” before I sprayed it, so if you try this just know that that will happen.
I used one of Tim Holtz’s On-the-Edge dies and cut out the little houses. Before I attached them I scribbled chalk on the card where all the windows were so there’d be something other than black there.
I used some distress ink to create the orange ribbon. I glued everything down.
Truthfully…I actually purchased some wiggle things that would have attached the witch to the background and she could have wiggled BUT COULD I FIND THEM – NO! Good grief. I have no idea what they are called, but I’m sure some day they’ll turn up. :)
