Chalkin' it up

Thank goodness for those constant challenges are put out there!
Otherwise, I would never have thought to grab some of the
DCWV "All Chalked Up" cardstock
 and enter this terrific challenge at
with Claire!
 
The technique challenge this week is to use the stamps on a
black background to give the look of chalk!
Well, I love my Waltzingmouse Stamps
and
I have the perfect cardstock paper for such a project!
 

 
DCWV has a line of erasable chalk cardstock that comes in dozens of colors!
This stuff is amazing!
You can write on it with your chalk, and then rub off if you choose or change your message.
Makes for perfect home decor that you can re-write messages daily!
Also perfect with this paper are the Bistro Chalk Markers. They wipe off with water, too!
 
The only chalk I could locate in my house today was my grandson's sidewalk chalk,
so no small detailing on this card. (Gotta wonder where I put my art chalks...hmmm....)
 
The stamps I used are all Waltzingmouse.
Sentiment is from "Rescue Remedies",
The frame and swirl are "Vintage Labels 4".
 
Thanks for hanging in here with me over the past few months.
I've been feeling very ill and things have been a bit slow and patchy,
but with a New Year comes getting well again!

Erasable chalk cardstock - how cool! Note to self - must track some down. Love your red, black and white color combo.

Nothing beats black, white, and red on a Valentine, Jan! I love the big hugs and kisses! Those corner accents are adorable...kind of remind me of pushpins which goes so well with the chalkboard-y office kinda theme!
