This month I'm featuring the chalkboard technique on my cards.
  It's a fun and easy technique.  So let's get started....get out your chalk............nope..........get out your white inks.  I prefer to use
my VersaMagic white chalk ink for the powdered chalk effect on my cards but for the actual stamping I like Colorbox white pigment ink and white embossing powder.  Over to the left is my black and yellow card with some wide striped yellow-white ribbon.  did some masking so the fish would be swimming in front of the bamboo reeds.  Last card on this hop is the fancy gold fish bowl.  I added the banners to give my card some dimension.  Hope you enjoy the hop this month and found some inspiration along the way.
Please continue on to see what Janine has to show you with her Wealthy Fish.
