Love and a chalkboard!

Hello! We are in week two for the current CR84FN Color Challenge!!!

This week I wanted to try my hand on this new trend in the stamping world called the chalkboard technique. I know, I've never seen a pink chalkboard! But I wanted to use our yummy colors from our current CR84FN challenge!

AND...I wanted to make a sweet Valentine's card!!!! 

This chalkboard technique was so much fun! I will definitely try it again! If you are interested in this technique, go check out Betsy Veldman's tutorial for the current Make It Monday Challenge.
It is a combination of heat embossing, a white watercolor pencil and sponging with some white ink!

Of course, I had to add some romance to the card, so I added lots of Prima flowers and a paper doily.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
And don't forget...check out what the other designers have done and
 come play with us at CR84FN!!!!!


Stamps: Wings of Love, Love Notes (Verve)
Other stuff: White embossing powder,Versamark ink,embossing folder, Prima Flowers, paper doily
