I used the lordhavemercy sketch challenge for this card and was finally able to try the chalkboard technique. I didn't have white craft ink so wasn't able to do it before:-)
I used Ruby Red card stock for the base and the Inspired by Nature set for the stamp. I used water color crayons to color the flowers over the white craft ink.
I colored the black and white ribbon with ruby red markers to take the starkness off the white. I also colored the thread that goes through the ribbon.
It was my first attempt at this technique, but won't be my last :-)

thank you for taking the time to look.
