I finally got a chance to participate in another Merry Monday Challenge - it's been a few weeks since I've made a Christmas card and I didn't want to fall behind in building up my stash for next Christmas.
The challenge is Chalkboard. I stamped the Blueprint Pinecone on black card stock with Versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder. I did the same with the Handwritten Holidays sentiment. I scribbled white chalk over the whole panel then wiped over it with a paper towel.
I stamped the cone again and embossed in white - cut it out and layered the cut out over the image on the panel using foam dots. This was the technique Tim Holtz used on his January 2016 tag
(Here's my Tim tag here)
I added 3 metallic sequins as a nod to the brown color of a natural pinecone. I layered the chalkboard panel to a silver panel and then to a white card base.
