Love At First Sip

Happy 2013!

I hope that you had a happy and safe New Year's Eve?!

I spent most of it stamping! Fun!

Yesterday the challenge on SCS was the Chalkboard technique. Such a fun and easy technique that seems to be all the rage right now :)

I had already chosen what stamps and papers I was going to use for the Mojo 274 sketch so instead of black cardstock I went with Basic Gray. Not to mention I couldn't find any black cardstock...that is until I cleaned up this mess after making the card...

In the end, I think it works? No?
I stamped the cups in versamark and embossed with white ep and paper pieced them with more of the cute heart designer paper.

Ink: White Craft, Versamark
