This challenge asked us to use the chalkboard technique. I love this technique! I wanted to keep it simple....so I just chalked 3 flowers more or less identically (well, actually I did 5, but the other 2 will have to be for another card). The leaves are also done the same way (Petal Pizazz). Throw in some certainly celery ribbon, some grass and we're almost there. The background was also sponged with white ink to give the look of clouds, and the grass sponged and overstamped to give more depth. Finally, I have lots of texture going on, besides the ribbon and the grass....the flower backgrounds are done with faux suede and the flowers themselves were crumpled to make them more 3 dimensional.
This card is really begging to be touched, which I love.
Hope you enjoy.
