Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #98 | Chalkboard Technique

This week's Make It Monday Challenge is to use Betsy Veldman's Chalkboard technique on a card. I think my jaw hit the floor when I read her blog post featuring this technique ... talk about gorgeous cards! And I was anxious to pull out some of my Valentine's stamps and try it myself. 

I used Papertrey Ink's Sending My Love set for the sentiment and a flourish from Over Under Easy. I used a white colored pencil for the outline and to color in the "by your side" banner.  

(Supplies - Stamps: (PTI) Sending My Love, Over Under Easy. Cardstock: Smokey Shadow, Sweet Blush. Ink: VersaMark. Patterned Paper: BasicGrey. Gems: Hero Arts. Other: heart button, white twine, white embossing powder.)

Isn't it a fun card? After I finished up this card (late) last night I wanted to make 10 more! 

I have one more card to post tonight for this week's ColourQ challenge, so check back in a few!
