A masculine chalkboard Valentine.
Earlier this month at our local stamping club meeting we were having fun experimenting with ideas using the chalkboard technique for cards. It's fun, and makes for a fairly quick card.
A friend (thanks Barb) suggested I use the SU Love Bandits set for a masculine feel. Another friend (thanks Hilda) had the idea for the "Wood U" part of the sentiment, which I hand lettered.
The images are stamped in white pigment ink and white heat embossed. Colored pencils were used for a few highlights. Then it was sponged lightly with white ink in a few spots to make it look even more like a chalkboard. Last of all, lines were drawn around the edges with a ruler for a border, then it was matted on Bravo Burgandy and Bashful Blue cardstock.
All Stampin' Up stamps were used: Love Bandits, Festive & Fun, P.S. I Love You (brackets for "Wood U")
Thanks for stopping by.
