Chalkboard tutorial

This week's tutorial at OWH is to create a chalkboard technique for a card.  I loved the video tutorial by Jann!  Using a stamp set from Fiskars called Asian Inspired, I created the following card and "chalked" my stamped images:
The picture is blurry and my lighting is off, but this was my fourth picture! (I gave up trying to get a good picture)  I used a ribbon technique from Sandy Allnock as well.  It's a great way to hold that little ribbon in place.
I was on an Asian-themed kick and I completed two more cards. For this one, I used the Cherry Blossom background, colored with Copics and the Love symbol embossed over vellum.
My second card used the same background stamp, but this time, I colored the blossoms with a pink Smooch ink and used the Happiness symbol:
There's just something peaceful about using Asian images, isn't there?  I enjoyed our tutorial for the week.  OWH is just chock-ful of ideas for 2013 and I can't wait to learn more!
