Chalking it up Times Two for Friday Mashup

I'd like to thank everyone who joined us at The Friday Mashup for the 100th Challenge Celebration. It was terrific to see new faces among those who have been faithful players. Everyone did a great job going back and choosing their favorite mashup challenge!

We're moving right along and this week Amy is bringing us our 101st challenge.....use the chalkboard technique, use 2 different stamp sets or mash it up and do both of these things! I mashed it up and did both.

I used one of the images from the Friendship Preserves set and used Whisper White Craft ink to stamp it. After it dried I used the Window Frame Framelits to cut it out and I also cut out the next largest sized frame. I sponged both of them with the craft ink to get the look of chalk dust. For my second stamp I used a sentiment from an older retired set called 'Cheery Chat'. I sent this card to a dear friend and really love this sentiment!

Make sure you head over to The Friday Mashup to check out the rest of the great projects from the design team and then play along with us!
