Chalkboard Card with Tips and Techniques

Hello Beautiful Carfters!
Shilpa here,
Hope you are enjoying our challenge of this fortnight

There is always fun to use New crafty products! And It is an adventure to try new technique!
Pooja and Valou have presented marvellous cards with this theme before!

Today, I've come up with newest trend in the industry, Chalkboard Paint!
And here is my card ,

What are other new products I've used ?
Poppy paper pad from Little yellow bicycle and Prima Optimist collection - awesome  papers!

 Aren't these orange blooms gorgeous? They are Prima Mulberry flowers. Look at Wood Laser cut veneers Leaves, they too are from Prima ! Cute orange sugar dots (enamel dots) add elegance to the project, which I had put on card as a finishing touch.
 Lulupu has got exquisite stock of embellishments, go grab them before they vanish :)

 let's move on to some Tips and Techniques of Chalkboard paint

1.Chalkboard Paint come in three classic colours - Black, Red and Green. They are very high quality and opaque. You can apply it on Wood, Paper, Terra Cotta, Canvas and most pours surface.
 2. How to apply - Two coats are recommended. Apply first coat horizontally, let it dry for an hour. Apply second coat vertically, let it dry for 24 hrs. My experience is, paper dries within an hour. And your Chalkboard is ready!
3. Most obvious mediums that we work on chalkboard paint are - Chalk, Pastel pencils in white, pink, blue,green colours, Colour pencils, Crayon, White jelly roll pen, white pigment ink, embossing powder, Gelatos.
4. What can we create with this? - Flowers and leaves with white borders, tags, gift cards, journal cards, banners, frames, fridge magnets, or cute little Chalk board itself for your kids' room or for your kitchen! possibilities are endless!
Don't wait! Try this soon!
