Waltzingmouse Monday Morning Make

Popping in quickly again with a card for Claire's Monday Morning Make she posted on her blog yesterday...
if you happen to have missed it you can get all the details HERE!
I know lots are excited about this challenge and it's a fabulous one to start off with...
Chalkboard Technique!

After dinner last night I sat down...
streamed a little Downton Abbey into the crafty space...
pulled all my Waltzingmouse sets out trying to decide which to use...
which was hard because there are so many that will work perfectly with this technique...
and finally decided to give Camellia a go with it and here's the results...

Can't say I've mastered the technique...
but I do love that since it's supposed to have a sort of "messy" look about it...
I think I can get away with the imperfections!
Now after completing this one...
another idea struck me upside the head..."BAM!"...
so I'm going to give it a go later and don't be surprised if I show up again!

So you have until next Monday to play along and there will be a random winner of 20GBP to use in the store...
just link up your creation using the Mr. Linky on Claire's blog HERE!

Till next time!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Camellia
Cardstock: WP9 Cupid's Bow, PTI True Black, Soft Stone
