Re-doing Chalkboard!

Hi! A few years back, chalkboard was everywhere. I love this look and thought trying a slightly look with it was worth a try.
I've used Prismacolors and this beautiful set 'In Bloom: Anna's Floras'
Firstly, white heat emboss onto black card. Then lay down some white pencil as a base layer to help provide a base to show up the colour.

Next, start to add colour. You may need to add several layers to give some vibrancy to the depth of colour.

Then just trim out all the flowers and stack them at the top of the card
The traditional method of using heat embossing, white ink stamped and some ink blending/smudging around small areas. I've used these but rather more subtly, focussing instead on the black based flowers.

For the sentiment, I used the Winnie & Walter Set 'The Party'
The finishing touches are simply some different sized pearls; enough to give a little focus but not to detract or 'fight' with the flowers. As they're not as bright as usual, I wanted something delicate.

Hope you like the blackboard styled cluster. The flowers are stuck slightly off the card to add some dynamism.
Do give this style a re-visit, you'll be glad you did!

See you next week!

    1. It's really hard to predict sorry as lots of items are still unavailable at their end. Eu postage for orders under 100g is now only 1 pound more than UK so that should help
