Happy Birthday

Hey all, this week the lovely Sue, a DT gal over at Annabelle Stamps Blog, has created a beautiful card using what I would call a blackboard technique - stamping on black cardstock with white ink and then colouring the image in with pencils.

this technique works best with silhouette stamps ... here is a close up of the flowers

it really is like colouring on a blackboard ... crikey am I showing my age as when I was at school the teacher wrote on blackboards - not sure on this but I think nowadays they use whiteboards :-)
I based this card on a Papertake Weekly sketch and I chose #42

I also included buttons in the flower center for Crafty Catz - cute as a button challenge and Party Time Tuesday - anything goes.
materials used - AC olive, Kaisercraft seafoam, smooth black cardstock; Basic Grey 'hello luscious' papers; Color Box frost white ink; Annabelle Stamps 'designer flowers' stamp set; Prismacolor pencils; 16mm pistachio satin trim; buttons.
Thanks for looking.
