Oh, So Easy Chalk Board

The chalk board look is not one that I have taken to, but with some of the digital images at Diane's Daydream Designs, I could get to like it.  I've used a pre-colored digi for this card:

Can't get much easier:  print, cut, punch a border, add ribbon.  Presto.  The swirls in the top corners are even already done for me.  Yep, I like the idea.

Even though Valentine's day is over, our deployed troops still need love cards all year round to send back home.  This digi (and there are more chalk board digis at the store)  makes for a quick, lovely card to send to OWH.

  1. Oh, I just love your card, Marsha! I happen to be crazy about the chalkboard look, and I'm surprised since as an old time teacher I actually used chalkboards, and hated them! I can still smell that dust! But I do love the new designs using the effect. Your card showcases it beautifully. So artfully crafted!!!

  2. I happen to have cleaned off too many blackboards and cleaned the brushes to like the blackboard effect as much as Diane. You card however is just so sweet and adorable. What a great job. Thank you for sharing this lovely art with us. Please come back soon.
