HB Dana

My niece works in the school system, so I was really excited to be able to make this card for her. I used White Craft Ink, which stays wet for a longer time and covers any color cardstock. While it was still tacky, I colored the flowers and stems. It makes the black cardstock look like a chalkboard IRL. I wonder if any of the school systems actually use chalk and chalkboards anymore... Hmmm. Deets:
Stamps: Happy Harmony
Paper: Orchid Opulence, Basic Black
Ink: Craft White
Accessories: Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Orchid Opulence and Old Olive Chalks, Designer Label and Ticket Punches

Stamps: Birthday Whimsy
C/S: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon
