Chalkboard creations

Hi everyone!

It's Nat here bringing you this week's dare.

Over the past few months I've been seeing a lot of beautiful pins on Pinterest showcasing various types of Chalkboard Artwork.

From gorgeous handwritten signage to amazing murals in homes and businesses...

Even Oprah has got in on the act!

You've probably also seen this trend taking off in the stamping world too. I didn't realise just how effective and easy it could be to incorporate this look on handmade cards until Betsy Veldman shared her fantastic tutorial on just this technique on her blog here.

So this week I've challenged the design team and you to... 
Create a card that pays homage to the chalkboard look

Ideally I would love it if you could try the heat embossing technique, but if you don't have the supplies there are plenty of fonts and printables out there that you could use to replicate the look.

Here are the gorgeous cards the design team created:

Looks like this was a difficult challenge but thanks for introducing me to the technique - I'll be doing this one again x
