Lawnscaping Challenge #69

Hey guys!  I'm back with another card I made for the current Lawnscaping Challenge to make a project where the sentiment stands out.

I've had an idea in mind for several days and I'm glad I had some free time today to work on it since this is the last day to submit...phew!  I really like the look of chalkboard cards and have been wanting to try the technique for awhile.  I thought that the chalkboard would be a good background for a Lawn Fawn sentiment collage.  Here is the card I created:

This was fun because I always have a hard time picking a sentiment go with a card and with this card, I didn't have to make a decision :)

I used sentiments from all of my Christmas Lawn fawn sets and made a few custom sentiments with Milo's ABCs  (quickly becoming one of my favorite letter sets).  I embossed the sentiments and snowflakes in white.  The chalkboard technique was fairly easy, and I found that color box pigment ink in frost white worked well to create the look.  I used a larger dauber and inked up the sentiments.  I took a paper towel after to blend in some of the areas.  Here is a closer look:

I finished off the look with holly (from Winter Gifts by Lawn Fawn) with glossy accents and clear gems.  I mounted the collage on patterned paper (from Peace, Joy, Love by Lawn Fawn) with red lawn trimmings. 

That's all I have for today...thanks for dropping by and happy crafting!
