Hi friends!

This week is another theme week over at Studio Katia and this time we are celebrating Back to School!

I’m a big fan on chalkboard theme in general. And when it came to creating a school themed card of course my first thought was to create a chalkboard. Which would carry a sentiment.

To make a chalkboard piece I first cut a black cardstock panel.

As far as sentiment goes I wanted that part of it to be kind of written with a chalk, and another part is written with a finger onto a covered with chalk residue area.

I used Teacher’s Apple Stamp Set to make the sentiment.  For the first part it was simple – I just stamped it with white pigment ink.  For the word teacher, which I intended to have written with finger, I first clear embossed it. Then I grabbed a paper towel, rubbed against a white ink pad, to get some ink onto the towel. And then I rubbed the panel with it transferring the white ink from the towel onto it. I rubbed in different directions to mimic the look of real chalkboard. And I especially paid attention around the word teacher, to rub more ink around it and make it more stood out. Next I ironed off clear embossing to remove the relief embossing creates.

I stamped, watercolored and cut out an apple using a stamp from the same stamp set and adhered it onto the chalkboard panel. I also stamped Kobi from Kobi The Birthday Bear Stamp Set and modified it a bit by adding a hat and nerdy glasses from Smarty Pants Stamp Set as well as mustaches from Teacher’s Apple Stamp Set. Fun fact – after adding mustaches it became looking more like a dog that a bear lol. Then I watercolored it as well and cut out using scissors.

I cut a couple more panels out of orange and yellow patterned paper and adhered all panels onto a white card base crooked one along another, then the Kobi was foam mounted in the right bottom corner and several enamel dots finishing off the card.

    Какой же смешной мишка-ботан!))) Но на песика все-таки не похож… И чаааалк! Сегодня смотрели с Алиной твои открытки, подаренные мне, и как-то я соскучилась сразу по чалку))
