Sweet Stamps Monthly Challenge- Chalkboard Stamping

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this Month is Chalkboard Stamping.
    From the  April/May 2013  Technique Junkies newsletter, I used the Chalkboard Stamping technique to make a card and a tag.
  I love the look of the Chalkboard technique against the black background. I used Authentique DP and Creative Inspirations Paint on the flower. The background image was stamped on DP in Paprika Shades die ink.

  I repeated the exact same stamping, only I used the SweetCuts flower die and added it to the top of the tag- punching a hole in its center for my fiber. The top layer has CI paint on it for shimmer.

 I sure hope you will come join us for the challenge- it runs for an entire month- from 6/15 thru 7/14- so you have plenty of time to join us.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:

I wonder what school would be like if there could be a sweet scripture put up on the board each morning? Your tag and card are so natural looking. I should know, I cleaned a lot of blackboards during my school days.
Thank you for sharing this fabulous art with us. Please come back real soon with more creations.
Abundant Blessings,
