Chalkboard washi tape and sad goodbye

Hello friends!!!!
Neha here! December is my last moth at Lulupu and this is the last post. Its been a great and the most memorable journey here at Lulupu , It made me learn so much and have definitely grown as a better crafter, but sadly it has to end. 
 You can find details about our current challenge here

I have made two cards and the main focus of my cards this time is chalkboard style washi tape which I had received in my DT kit. I just loved this washi tape, using it you can create cool chalkboard effect with such an ease. You can find them in Lulupu store here

I haven’t tried chalkboard style before, so I was a bit unsure but now all my doubts are clear. I just put chalkboard washi tape on a CS and trimmed it according to the need. Then I have used pigment inks for stamping the sentiments. I stamped sentiment 2-3 times with pigment ink so there visibility is better and clear. For this I used my MISTI tool as I had to stamp 2-3 times. It makes your work so easy. I just love it! One thing you have to keep in mind while stamping with pigment ink on tape is that it takes time in drying. So leave it without disturbing till it dries completely otherwise it will smudge.

For first card I created the chalkboard panel and matted it with a blue CS.  Also, wrapped some twine around it. Next I matted it over ivory CS which was stenciled with DI (broken china) and stencil and lastly matted it over a black card base.

Here comes the second card. For this card I have used the same above technique for chalkboard effect. Did some stamping with black archival ink on ivory CS using altenew wild hibiscus stamp. Also heat embossed few flowers using golden EP. Then fussy cut them and colored with DIs mild lavender and Victorian velvet. Added some liquid pearls gold in the center. Also added a strip of golden glitter sheet beneath the chalkboard panel and arranged embossed flowers and my card was ready.

I hope you like these cards and will try your hands on this chalkboard washi tape.

 And now is the time to say the final goodbye. I will be active on my  Facebook page. Will love if you connect with me there. Lulupu was the first blog whose challenges I use to enter last year and first one to take me as DT this year in January I am really thankful to Karuna Chauhan for believing in me and giving me a chance to design for Lulupu. This blog gave me the wonderful opportunity to work with some really awesome and talented team of designers, Manu, Tanvi, Kripa and Dolly. 
Lastly, I would like to share few of my most favorite projects for this year. I really enjoyed making these projects for Lulupu.
Here is a card which I had made for my very first DT post. It’s a Circle shaped side step card. This one is my favorite

Next one is a Luminary. I was very happy the way it turned out finally.

A lighthouse made from scratch. It was very much appreciated by everyone.

My favorite Mixed media canvas with gelatos.

 I also tried my hands on CAS cards for the very first time.

I hope you guys also liked these projects. Thanks you very much for always visiting and appreciating my work. I hope the coming year brings with it a lot of happiness and prosperity in your life.
Wishing you a very happy new year in advance.
