Game # 4 : AAA Cards

Hi there!

We were thrilled to see so may lovely entries in game #3 last week! You really rocked the challenge!

This week we have a Technique challenge for you to try at AAA cards !


                                                    

Chalkboard technique!

The card I have to show you was my first attempt at the technique!
I struggled a bit... must admit, because I usually aim for CLEAN and simple, and with my research about the technique, I found out that the whole 'thing' was to make it look a bit like an erased chalkboard! Which is not THAT clean!

Anyway if I can do it, you can do it... better!




Hope to see you again this week at AAA cards! So off you go, and be inspired be the rest of the team's wonderful inspiration!

I think it looks fabulous Hannalie. I love the touch of chevron ribbon.

You have a fabulous focal point and lots of open space which is the meaning of CAS. Your card is simply marvelous, Hannelie!

Cool card - that's pretty darn CAS for a chalkboard card - great that red button in the center and all those chalk smudges on teh back panel! Dankie for your lovely comments!

This is brilliant, Hannelie ... the white flower glows beautifully amid the 'rubbed off chalk' ... great pop of red with the button and chevron ribbon! Anita :)

Still looking verry simple, al is het niet "schoon geveegd"! Beautiful flower and a great focal point with the red butten! Great to be challenged like this! Groetjes, Gerrina

Well done chalkboarding, my friend! I'm not sure if I can handle it; but if time allows this week, I'll surely give it a shot. Love how managed to keep it CAS. Great card. Bev

I have to agree with the others, you card looks fabulous! You would never know it was your first attempt. I love it!

I have yet to try the chalkboard technique. If I thought I could carry it off as well as you have, I might give it a try. :)

O, ek is mal oor die chalkboard effek, vrou, alhoewel ek dit nog nie self baie gedoen het nie. Jy het dit perfek bemeester!! Ek is mal oor hoe jy die rand van die kaartjie gedoen het - dit lyk stunning en ek hou van die ronde hoeke op die boonste laag. Die stukkies lint wat so net-net uitloer lyk pragtig en die eenvoudige blom en sentiment werk lieflik!! Mal ook oor die prettige knopie!! Pragtig!!
Ek gaan nou gou loer na die ander DT kaartjies by AAA.
Groete en lekker bly!!!

Such a little cutie card! Love the way the ribbon just peeps out of each side. AAA Cards is also inspiring me to try new things.

Geri said...

Wowzers girl! This is one heck of an amazing result for your first attempt at chalkboard! Fun, whimsical & trendy with the sweetest wee peek of the chevron ribbon!

Rema said...

Awesome Card! Love the pop of red...

Barb Ghig said...

Love your take on this week's theme, Hannelie! Such a great idea to add a pop of red to your card...I think you did an amazing job on your first attempt, too! Thanks so much for your inspiration!
