I used Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy on this card as both are retiring. I'll miss both as they made a great team together. This a card in my "easy" category. Stamp and watercolor. Easy.

The chalkboard technique is simply stamping in our Whisper White craft ink on Basic Black Paper and then using a sponge to add some chalk dust. The fine detail inside the solid shapes makes this stamp set a great candidate for this technique.

This card got more positive feedback than I expected. See, I made the white part and everything on it to fit a frame. When I put it in the frame, it didn't look right. Being late the night before the hop, I decided to switch it back to a card. I, literally, just adhered my white part onto a card base and added the sentiment. I think its' crazy how mistakes can be made into a miracles. A true benefit of stamping is that creativity is more than just colors, but making the best of a bad situation!
