Dazzling Diva #39 Challenge

So where did the summer go?  Although the kids aren’t back to school here yet, it won’t be long.  It’s a back to school theme this week:

Thought a blackboard look would be fun for this challenge.  I stamped the image in Versamark on some black card stock and heat embossed in Platinum.  Next, the sentiment was stamped in white and then more ink was added for a chalky blackboard look.

The sweet little apple was stamped in Stazon which works so well with the craft metal sheets.  Once it was dry, I fussy cut it and added a leaf in green too. It was shaped with a stylus and then popped up with some foam adhesive to add more dimension. Then the letters were cut from the same red craft metal sheet.  The background has been stamped with two shades of Distress Ink.  I wanted to use mainly primary colors for this theme so that’s how I made my color choices.

A few gold stars, a couple of sequins and done!

Here’s what I used:
Paper:  Bazzill Marshmallow white, SU! Basic Black
Ink:  Versamark, Hero Arts Unicorn, Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink, Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink, black Stazon
Stamps:  Lawn Fawn A Good Apple, WPlus9 Borders & Backgrounds 4
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, MFT Highrise Lower Case Die-namics, Add a Little Dazzle Scarlet Red craft metal sheet, Add a Little Dazzle Garland Green craft metal sheet, Studio Calico gold stars, Pretty Pink Posh Christmas Mix sequins, Tim Holtz scissors, adhesives, sponge

  1. Love the chalkboard and the way you've used the metal sheet letters- they really make the design come to life! All the best people used a chalkboard in their designs this week 😉
