Sweet Birthday Wishes

birthdaywishesmaureenplut

Good morning!  When I saw Claire’s challenge over on the Waltzingmouse Makes Blog, I had to join in.  Not only was I itching to play with my Waltzingmouse stamps but I was also wanting to make another chalkboard card!  WMS are perfect for these kinds of cards with all the flourishes and bold sentiments in so many of their sets.  So I opened my binder and box of stamps and started picking out some flourishes I thought kind of looked like a chalk line.  I loved the colouring with a white pencil crayon and smudging white ink at the end! So fun!  Must be the teacher in me loving the chalkboard!  LOL  Have a great day!

Gorgeousness. I love the subtle purple mounting of the chalkboard. It is the perfect color to offset the black...and you're right...the stamps are divine for this technique.

Look at all those little mini images that you pulled together! Such a creative eye you have, Ms. Maureen! Love the addition of the purple elements... makes the chalkboard technique all sweet and feminine, just how you do it with your awesome Western cards! I'm going to start calling your Maureen O' All Trades ;)!
