MIM #98 Chalkboard Technique

Betsy Veldman shares with a chalkboard technique with us that was just too much fun.
Her step by step tutorial was so easy to follow!
Check it out on Nichole Heady's blog at PapertreyInk.
This is a Valentines for my my husband.
It represents perfectly the majority of my life that has been spent with my mate!
Combined the new stamp set: Sending my Love with Heart-2-Heart #7,
Back Pocket Basics and Fancy Flouishes.
Debbie Olsen has a tutorial on dyeing your own seam binding with copics to get a perfect match.
I think it was last month.
Just happened to have the pocket watch button in my stash, and I agree with Betsy,
the whole technique really doesn't need much more!
Honestly, I think the design team at PapertreyInk are geniuses!
Thank you Betsy!
Happy New Year all!
