Chalkboard Style Birthday Card

Card Front
 Hello crafty friends n bloggers I am back with a card again :) no surprise !

Side View
I know chalkboard style was a trend long back ! I had loved it and recent challenges made me try it finally .
Rather than heat embossing or stamping with white ink.I used even more easy way..paining/drawing with white acrylic color using a thin painting brush :) Did need  bit of practice .. I was happy to use up all the black paper scraps from my stash.

Side view
For the background I used a stencil n watercolor on watercolor paper.I combined two techniques from Online Card class(Ok I messed first one ) for the effect.Adhered the watercolored panel on handmade cardbase and sentiment panel over it with foam tape.



Top view
Embellished with handmade cabbage roses ,ribbons and natural feathers.
