In My Corner

Claire over at Waltzingmouse Stamps issued a Monday morning challenge on her blog to create something using the faux chalkboard technique. I received some new WMS stamps just this week, so was itching to try them out. As you can see from the photo above, this is a very forgiving technique - designed to be messy! Here's my card:

The flower is from the Camellia set, and the background tag is from the Opera Tag set. The sentiment in the corner is from the Rescue Remedies Additions set. I used chalk pencil crayons to highlight the flower and leaves. And look, Claire, I used that ribbon!

This is just beautiful Charmaine, I love the frame around the fab tag and flower, and I like the pop of colour you gave it, I was too scared to use a promarker on mine!

Such a beauty! Absolutely LOVE how you did the leaves, Charmaine! Your chalkboard doodle edge is so authentic...and that sentiment? Perfect (and in the perfect spot :))!
