Christmas In July

Hey, so glad you stopped by. I've been wanting to try to create a card with a "Chalkboard" look to it and here is what I came up with...
I used just plain black cardstock and with Versa Mark watermark ink, inked on my images [the scripture verse,{Just Rite} and scroll work, {sorry can't remember}]. Then I heat embossed them using white detail embossing powder. I added a few lines and coloured in a few areas with a white pencil crayon. Mounted it onto a layer of white cardstock, then another of red cardstock. The DP is by MME, [Christmas, Nol, Navidad]. Added a pretty grosgrain ribbon in the top corner.
I really like the way this turned out and will certainly be trying it again.
Until next time.
