Default WT494 - Back to Old School (8/28/14)

It is back to school time, but today, we are going way back to OLD SCHOOL. Today, I want you to use a chalkboard.
You can do one of those trendy little cards that look like a chalkboard, the chalkboard technique with embossing, chalkboard technique with chalk, alter a real chalkboard, or just some black with white ink, or something else your creative mind brings.

Check out all of the OLD SCHOOL creations in the gallery.

Don't forget to use WT494 on your project, so we can see how you schooled us too!

Sabrina and I have a couple of samples to get those throw back vibes going. She used embossing, and I used just plain ol' black CS with white ink.

Smile WT494 Change Your View

Michelle- great challenge, thanks! I had fun doing this card- reminds me of tropical locales- I used corrugated cardboard and some patterned green fabric for accents.Here's Change Your View

My card is pulling double duty this week, for the CAS challenge - color it and this one - make/use a chalkboard. I made mine using a white gel pen that I smeared to make a pretty chalkboard background for my main image panel.
