Chalkboard Halloween

Time for a new challenge at 
Less Is More - Chalkboard Technique.

Here are some links to show you what the technique is about

I must say that this technique was not an easy one for me to embrace. It was hard for me to find a combination of stamps and design that was pleasing to me. I made a totally different card at first, but I was very unhappy with it. I went fishing in my stash and came up with this stamp set called Subway Series Holidays from Freshly Squeezed Stamps (no longer in business) that is perfect for the  technique. The picture does not show the white ink that I swiped across the black panel, but trust me, it is there. I made 2 other cards with the same set and the same design with different patterned paper scraps. You can see the "chalk" more easily on them. The design was just too plain, so I added that stitched line from Paper Smooches Stitched Wise Dies on the left. That did the trick for me!

Please head over to the Less Is More Blog and see what the Design Team has created for your inspiration. I hope you'll play along with us to share your creations and for a chance to win. Remember to keep your design Clean And Simple.

To be eligible for showCASe and PRIZE WINNER choices you will need to carefully follow the guidance on our GLOSSARY OF TERMS and our HOW TO PLAY pages. Your design should feature lots of clean / white / blank / non patterned / non textured space. All challenge details are on the Less Is More blog. Good Luck!

I'm also playing at:

My NBUS item is the Paper Smooches Stitched Wise Die. I have the dies for years and never opened the package.

WOW - you found the perfect stamp set for this technique and each version of this trio is really wonderful! Isn't it amazing how something just 'clicks' and the right CAS design just falls into place? I love the Halloween version!
