51  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 89 ENTRIES / Celebration Plaque on: August 01, 2013 06:25:33 PM

Considering EVERY ten year anniversary is a BIG event, I wanted to create a plaque commerating the Craftster milestone!

I adore chalkboard artists (especially Dana Tanamachi) but do not possess the talent to carry it off.  After lots of experimentation I discovered a suitable alternative that does not require chalk, a chalkboard or for that matter talent!

I covered the interior of a tin plated serving tray with black contact paper to serve as the "chalkboard".  I then created a stencil of the wording in contrasting (green) contact paper and centered it on the "chalkboard".

Using a white TOTE-MARKER as the "chalk", (distributed by MARVY UCHIDA Company - - and reminds me of white liquid shoe polish but in a handy pen applicator), I colored in the stencil lettering.

After removing the stencil, my "oops" were cleaned up and a yardstick was laid across the tray to prevent my hand from smearing lettering as I added a perimeter of dots as highlights

While I was satisfied with the appearance, something was missing.  I decided to take a make-up brush and lightly applied baby powder to give it a dusty look.  

I'm really excited about this technique and plan on creating something similar for an upcoming wedding anniversary gift!

I've been wanting to use that tin tape, but couldn't figure out what to use it on.  Huh

Based on your entry I am now inspired.  Great Job! Cheesy

Awww...is it OK to say they are cute (or will they cast a spell on me)?

Love their expression and the attitude they all share!
