My Blackboard

Hello, once again I should be doing something else buy I am here instead - on hols tomorrow so I am taking a sneaky time out to show you the card I made last Sunday for the Paperartsy blog challenge.

Darcy made a stunning floral blackboard piece which I loved and I have made my version.

First I die cut the "black board" and painted with little black dress Fresco paint a couple of times. I use 1 flower die I got with my Monday Madness Mystery box and some leaf dies coloured them using Frescos and stamped with a script stamp, I decided they were a bit bright so covered with a light silver paint.

I have been wanting to do a background with the treasure gold, so I used by brickwork and ledger Stencil with grunge paste, and mixed 3 colours together, I left the middle as this was covered up.

At this stage I couldn't find my chalk so used more grunge paste the an alphabet stencil instead, and made some paper chalk.

Finished card!

I would like to enter into this weeks challenge at

I hope you like the project, please leave a nice comment.
