I've been wanting to have a go at the chalkboard look for quite some time, and the color splash challenge at
Play Date Cafe gave me the perfect excuse.
Here is my attempt.
The main thing I learnt was that it is oh, so much harder than the "experts" make it look!
I ended up using acrylic paint rather than ink as I couldn't get a dense enough color without the ink splodging.
I'm happy with it as a first attempt (although I hate to tell you how many failed stampings of "happy" ended up in the trash) but it's obviously a technique that needs some practice.
