Chalkboard Butterfly

So whilst I've been visiting all the entries for Less Is More I've noticed that the chalkboard technique has been used quite a few times... so I thought I would give it a go....

I'm not sure about the technique but I think that was because the white ink was too juicy and didn't give a crisp image... I'll have to give it another go at some point!!

  10. Honestly, I love the effect that you have achieved with the white ink! It gives the card such a soft look, almost like it was colored with pastel crayons. Perfectly placed images - so very, very pretty! Thanks for choosing to play along with our sketch this week at Unscripted Sketches :)
