I think I can hear the faint tinkling of Santa's bells.....yikes, it's December already! I can start to send out the cards made to celebrate the season. Hmmmm! Will need to purchase stamps first.
This week our challenge for Merry Monday is to make a card using the chalkboard technique. I have made a card using this technique here so it wasn't quite as hair raising this time.
I used Marisa Lerin's gorgeous digital chalk board base which includes the white frame. She has many designs and they are all lovely. Find them here at The Pixel Scrapper. To finish the chalk board effect I rubbed a little white pastel across the black with a tissue.
My obsession with spellbinders eyelet circles continues. You will find yet another one lurking in the background of this card. I have added a favorite Christmas red, and a green that is more yellow than the traditional Christmas green...... I think?? I finished the card with a wee bit of maroon, a bold stripe, twine and buttons.
