Inspiring Inkin' Challenge #18

Well I dediced to have a go at the Inspiring Inkin' Challenge which can be found here and this fortnightly's challenge was the Chalkboard Technique.

I stamped my image from "One of A Kind" stamp set onto basic black cardstock with White Kraft ink, then using my pastels and a dauber I added colour to the inked image.  I used Rose Red and Regal Rose Pastels.  My greeting is from the Sale-a-bration set "Vintage Labels" stamped with White Kraft ink.  I punched a 1/2" circle from Rose Red Designer Series Paper and added this with a Dimensional to the centre of the flower image.  I attached a piece of Silver Elastic Cord with a bow to the lower section of my card, added Silver Eyelets using my Cropadile to the top to balance it and used the Corner Rounder on the top two corners.  I inked the edges of my card with Rose Red ink using a dauber.
