SC 31/12

This is the second week for me as Guest Designer on Sunny Challenges and Creations. We have a simple sketch and have to use the chalkboard technique. Well it is a number of years since I have used that technique as it is one I am not good at! Believe you me, I tried several images before settling on this one from the Inspired by Nature Stampin' Up! set.

I made a frame using Nestabilities and ran it through a striped embossing folder before sponging the edges. Then it has been raised using Dimensionals. Colours used are SU Crumb Cake, Regal Rose and Basic Black and various SU chalks for the image.

The pink ribbon did not seem to match well enough so I dyed it with Regal Rose re inker.

I hope this card can inspire you to get out the chalks again and have a go - just for a change LOL!!
