Chalkborad Technique





They are measuring our expected snow fall in FEET, not inches! YIKES!!! We're suppose to get 2 feet of snow before it stops tomorrow night! This is the 2nd major snowfall of the year! They are saying it could be the biggest in the DC area ever! (Biggest recorded was 28") WOW. It started snowing at 10:15 this morning. And they are saying we could have near blizzard conditions later on tonight & early tomorrow with winds of 25 mph and gusts to 35 mph! So, I'm staying in and making cards and hopefully getting some scrapbooking done! Yeah!
My card tonight was another one for the mini VSN last weekend. The blackboard technique is one of my favorites. You stamp your image in white on a dark background, and then pounce patels on the image with a dauber. Here's the deets
Stamps: Wings of Friendship
Paper: Almost Amethyst, Elegant Eggplant
Ink: White
Misc: Stampin' Pastels, 1 1/4 & 1 3/8" punches, scallop corner & border punches
Have a great weekend, and stay warm & safe!
Happy Stamping.
Patty & Winifred
