Chalkboard Technique with Guest Designer Donna K

Hello again from Eastern, NC!
Donna K here with another SweetStamps "challenge" project for you this week.
The challenge is.... Chalkboard Technique and let me tell you... I LOVE this technique.
I think it's "vintage-y" and nostalgic and just plain pretty! 
You MUST give it a try and be sure to link up your card with this month's SweetStamps technique challenge!
I used a corrugated card base that is quite large at 5.5" X 5.5", but it provided me with lots of space to feature the lovely stamped Parisian Bouquet image.

I stamped the image using white craft ink.  I inked the stamp pretty heavily to be sure it looked "chalky" once it dried.  After it dried I used white colored pencils to draw around the distressed edges of the black paper to give it more of that chalkboard feel.  Are you feeling it?!

I hope you enjoy my project as much as I enjoyed creating it. 

Thank you again to Sweet Stamps and their lovely, talented crew for having me this week!
