Inspiration & Technique Tuesday!

Feb 11, 2014

Hi ya GI peeps,it's time for another friendly post from me.

Today I am going to share with you the chalkboard technique.

So lets get down to business..
This stamp, Watering Can Bouquet G302 is the perfect image for a little chalkboard technique. It's relatively simple and the effect is really pretty. Here is the basic recipe for you to try this technique.

1. Black  paper

2. White stamp ink ( I used StazOn )
3. A stamp ( I highly recommend any GI stamp but try not to use one with lots of itsy bitsy details) 
4. Prismacolor pencils or even pastel crayons. Make sure to used pastels for greatest visibility.




Stamp your image on the black paper making sure to give the ink enough time to dry



Next you will choose your colors.  Here is where things get tricky. You will want an extra piece of black paper to test your colors on. I found that bright pastels work best.


 Always try your choices out on the extra paper before coloring your image. TIP: When coloring, don't "brush" extra color away with your hand or sleeve, try to blow them off or flip your paper a few times. This will prevent you from accidently rubbing color into the paper.

Hope you liked my little visual tutorial.
