Chickadee Thank You

Julie Warner -

For today’s Technique Challenge (TLC410), we were to use a Chalkboard Technique. Apparently I didn’t read or follow all of the instructions. Oh well. I did use white ink on my black “chalkboard”, but I bypassed the embossing and smearing of the “chalk”.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs and the frame image and die cut around the sentiment are sneak peeks of some new stuff being released tomorrow.

I used the chickadee image and matching die for the little bird and the sentiment and antique label were stamped w/ the chalk ink and die cut. I used a labels 8 and rectangle dies for the panels behind the chickadee. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25. I sent this to our Avian Vet’s office, who were all so kind & took such good care of Odie, our beloved bird, when he was sick. I was touched that it was still on display in their office months & months later.

Thank so much for stopping by!

    It’s okay not to follow ALL the instructions……..I do it all the time. I so love using chickadees on my cards that I made it my image this past Christmas. Love your card, but I would have used a red “chalkboard” to make it pop. Thanks for the sneak peeks!

  3. I love it!!! and I like how your ‘chalk’ turned out! sometimes it pays to NOT follow instruction…lol!!!
