Serendipity Stamps Challenge #27

Hi there!

Hope you are having a good week. I'm already looking forward to the weekend, so you can tell how things are going around here! I am here today to share some inspiration for January's challenge on the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. The customer challenge this month is to use buttons on your project (the DT will provide inspiration twice each month, but you have the whole month to play along!)

This week we are combining buttons with the chalkboard technique.

I thought I'd like to try making my chalkboard green this time. Did you have green chalkboards when you went to school? I remember them in Elementary school. I used Ocean Tides cardstock to go with the green look. I stamped my Keep Your Face to the Sunshine image in Versamark and heat embossed it in white, adding some other details with a white colored pencil and some white pigment ink.

The sunny patterned papers bring it all together, and its topped off with my buttons, one of my favorite embellishments.

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

I hope you'll join us for this month's challenge - all you need to do is use buttons and at least one Serendipity Stamps image or die. Need to add to your collection? This week's sale is free shipping on all continental US orders of $10 or more. The sale runs through 1/22/14. Enjoy!
