12 tags of 2013 - November

Hi everyone,

With only a few hours to go before the entry closes, I want to share this tag I made for Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013 for the month November. During Creative Chemistry 102 I wasn't able to try it because I didn't have the Frosted Crystal Embossing Powder. But luckily I managed to get my hands on it. But I also needed regular blackboard chalk. I work at a university of applied science, but in these advanced times they don't use chalk and blackboards any more. But I also managed to get some good old chalk.

What a super fun technique the Chalk one is! It's not difficult at all, the only thing you need to be careful with is that you don't overheat the Frosted Crystal. I saw that there were some grains overheated ​​here and there. But as long as it's a few grains you're good to go and it only adds to the effect.

To decorate it a bit more, I used some washi tape and I colored some Modeling Paste with Modern Red and Dash of Red Studio Paint. I used it with the Dot Fade Layering Stencil. Over the dots, I added some exclusive Simon Says Stamp Mini Hearts  I cut out and I used the 25 of the Christmas Stacked Words and embossed it with Black Embossing Powder.

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

That is such a cool technique, Sannie! It makes the chalkboard effect look more realistic than regular chalkboard paint. Well done!!
