Chalkboard Art...


A new challenge launches on The Ribbon Girl Blog today and the theme is,  yes you guessed it, Ho Ho Ho!  so we want to see your Christmas projects and it doesn't have to be a card. Check out the Blog for some amazing creations from the rest of the team and the fabulous prizes on offer.

Now onto may card.  I love the latest chalkboard art trend and wanted to somehow incorporate it into my rustic design.   Using some ribbon and embellishments from the Rustic Selection in the Ribbon Girl shop.

I've been saving some chalkboard paper specifically for this project.  The lettering was causing me a problem though.   I thought about using stamps and white ink but, I don't know why, I can never get a good enough impression with a white ink pad.  Yesterday I had a light bulb moment - white rubon stickers!  My chalkboard art started out life like this ...


A pile of odd letters and words soon became Chalkboard Art.  Hope you like it!

I'll let you into a little secret too.  There's going to be a few special Ribbon Girl giveaways during December so be sure to keep checking the blog.

  1. Love your chalkboard art Vicky and what a great idea to use rub on stickers. Another thing to add to my 'to try' list. I have so many rub ons that I haven't really found a project for!

    Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
