Chalkboard Bouquet Card

Hello friends!

Today, I have a card that turned out way better than I thought it might. I knew that I wanted it to look like a chalkboard. Sometimes great ideas do not pan out like I hope they would. Luckily this turned out pretty cute. In fact, this is one of my favorite cards I have made using the new dies. 

To get the chalkboard look, I used a white ink pad and a sponge. I just moved a very small amount of ink around the cardstock. Less is definitely more with this technique.

For all supplies used, check out the bottom of the post!

What a great creative...would have never thought about how to achieve that 'chalkboard' look. And the colorful striped background was perfect for it. Super!
