Chalkboard Technique

Wow! Where have I been. I have been very busy creating and have not posted in a few weeks. I hope I was missed and now I have some cute projects to share. This card was inspired by my friend Sara's blog She had a beautiful card with this chalkboard technique, so I thought I would give it a go. I did not think mine was as vibrant as hers and I recently purchased a new white stamp pad and I will see if it makes a difference.
