Merry Monday #86 - Chalkboard Christmas

Happy Monday Everyone,
It's time for another challenge at Merry Monday and this week we are challenging you to use the Chalkboard Technique.  I stamped my images with Versamark and then embossed with White embossing powder.  I used Stazon Opaque Cotton White Ink to create a shadow on the words, chalk smudges and the holly.  To colour the holly I used my Prismacolour Pencils, first using white and then the colour.  I finished off with a Gold Metallic Mat, Stocking Stickers and my row of Bunting.  Check out the rest of the Design Teams fabulous creations at Always Playing With Paper.

Supplies:
Stamps: S/U's Magical Season, More Merry Messages, Happy Hour
Card and Papers: Cherry Cobbler, Gold Metallic, Basic Black, Whisper White, DSP Be of Good Cheer
Ink: Stazon Opaque Cotton White, Versamark, Chalk Pen, Prismacolour Pencils
Finishing Touches: Gold Cord, Upikit Peel off Stickers #123154
Cool Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Sponge, Petite Pennants Builder Punch, Tweezers, Ruler, Embossing Buddy, White E/Powder, Heat Tool, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots
Thanks for visiting today.
Hugs,
