Serendipity Stamps Challenge #26

Hi there!

Hope you are doing well, staying relaxed and enjoying the season. I am trying! Today it is time once again for a new challenge on the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. The challenge this week is chalk. I have such fun with the chalkboard technique, and that's what I used for my card.

I wanted to use something wintery and festive, so I used the Birch Candles image. I stamped it onto dark gray cardstock with white pigment ink, and then added a few accents with a white colored pencil. I also added some crystal glitter, because everything at the holidays needs to have a little sparkle! In the past, I've only ever used sentiment stamps for the chalkboard technique, but why not a pretty image?

Be sure to stop by and visit the rest of the Design Team:

I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge. If you're in the mood for a little shopping, Serendipity has more than 100 stamps on the 50% Off Wood Mounted Sale. They also have 3 different grab bags – unmounted, Sticky cushion, and Cling Cushion. Each has 10 small stamps. Just search for "grab bag"!

  4. Wow is this ever pretty Anya. Sometimes I see things you make and say - what stamp is that? Why don't I have that. Then I check my stash and see that I do have it and gotta say - am stumped that I never saw it the way you did. You always amaze me - this one is just that... amazing!
