This month I'm featuring the chalkboard technique on my cards.
  It's a fun and easy technique.  So let's get started....get out your chalk............nope..........get out your white inks.  I prefer to use my VersaMagic white chalk ink for the powdered chalk effect on my cards but for the actual stamping I like Colorbox white pigment ink and white embossing powder.  For these two cards I used a lot of pattern papers behind my images.  This cow is just too cute for the farm!  and the barn is just full of country charm.
Please continue on to see what Janine has on her country farm.
Here's the Design Team:


  1. Cute cards. The chalkboard technique was so perfect for this set.

  2. What a superb technique! Super cards!

  3. That cow looks so different in reverse! Like what you have been doing with this technique this week.

  4. I like the chalkboard against the pretty plaid paper. Two cute cards, Sue!

  5. Great cards! You always do amazing work!

  6. Love the chalkboards and love the DP you used to go with!

    and a big ah ha for me! LOL I have been struggling for months when I look at your blog because it jumps. (yours isn't the only one) I have looked online to see why and can't get anything to come up. I changed browsers and OH HEAVEN your blog no longer jumps it sits nice and still so I can read and look without getting motion sick!!!!

    1. Angie glad you like my cards.
      so sorry to hear you were having problems seeing some of our blogs but very happy it works now!
