Chalkboard Thank You

Hi there

Last night I decided to have a go at the chalkboard technique as I wanted to enter the current challenge at Muse.  I had absolutely no idea how to go about this so I found a link to a video where Marion Vagg, this week's fabulous muse, shares how to create this effect.  You can find her video here

So here's my card, I waited until this morning so I could photograph it in daylight.  I have kept the layout and the colours almost the same as Marion's card, just changing up the stamps.  Not bad for a first attempt, eh!

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Leafy Accents and Many Thanks
  • Ink: VersaMark; Versa Color - White
  • Embossing Powder: Stampin' Up - White
  • Punch: Craft Creatives - Mini Paper Punches
  • Gems and cardstock from stash
Here is Marion's card...

I'm also entering my card for the following Challenges:

2 Sisters Challenge - 171 Thank You
Card Crafter's Circle - 102 Thankful - Thank You
Creative Inspirations - 241 Thanksgiving/Thank You
Papertake Weekly - Giving Thanks

Thanks for dropping by.  I've got a few things to get done today but may be back later this evening if I find some crafty time.  I hope you have a lovely Sunday whatever you're up to.

Take care
