Once I learned how to do the Chalk Art
technique I thought how pretty it might be on a card. Well, 3:15am I woke up with this card all mapped out. Getting inspiration is great however in the middle of the night it can be hard to go back to sleep. All I want to do his head into my craft room and build. The Writing Desk die is a great Christmas card in the making.
The torn edges edge die works in harmony with the writing desk die. I used "both" edges.
I have the old Christmas stamp which is perfect for the this technique and die.
I created this eroded metal on the jar using black soot and antique bronze. I cut mini holly and inked with distress paint pine needles. After I painted pewter for the pen nib I added a little dab of black soot. Then everything is coated in clear rock candy paint. CRACKLE!!!
A simple piece of cream and stamped with a sentiment from Old Fashion Christmas.
Two pieces of 12x12 gives me 6, 4x6 cards.
Seventeen cards down...too many more to go. I hope you like my writing desk card using the chalk art technique. I love how these early morning cards worked out!
