This looks so much prettier in real life. This is the first time I have tried the chalkboard technique that I can remember and I really like it. Very easy! I stamped the Baroque Motifs swirl twice in Versamark on Basic Black cardstock and chalked it with shimmery chalks in green and then stamped the small flower and chalked in red. You then go over this with a Swiffer dusting cloth and it cleans up all of the chalk except on the stamped image.
The die cut is Sizzix Flower & Vine, layered the blossoms, curled and inked edges and added pearls. Sentiment is from A Christmas Cardinal, mounted in a Styled Silver hodgepodge hardware frame. Real Red and Handsome Hunter cardstocks also used in matting.
