What a fun look! Can't wait to give this a try!


Simply brilliant! What a fantastic effect - we'll be seeing this all over the web before you know it!

Maja / Oliwiaen

I'm always amazed by your creativity! Love the chalkboard idea - perfect also for the Teacher's Day :-)

Ericka S

I love this and have been wanting to create this look for my Christmas cards this year (with a picture). I do have a question. I don't like to use my white pigment ink because it doesn't come off of my stamps. Do you have the same problem? Any tips?

Jill Norwood

Beyond BRILLIANT! Love them all and I want to try it!


Absolutely great, love this idea and so like the real thing. Look forward to giving this a try.


OMG!! Betsy, you never ever cease to amaze me with your creations. Thanks for breaking this into steps for us. I'll start looking in my stash to make something like this. You'r a genius!!

Amanda Profumo

I love this!!! What a great idea and such a good use of all your stamps!

Karen Rose

Betsy you are so creative. Sometimes when I initially look at a photo I think "that's too complicated for me to try" but you outline the steps so clearly that I believe I can. Thanks so much!!
