A is for Alphabet

I recently started looking for a Preschool and thought a thank-you card could come in handy. I used the chalkboard poppin pastels technique by stamping the letters with white pigment ink and using a sponge dauber to add white pastel chalk - purposely making it a little messy so it would look more like a chalkboard. This is the first in a fun new series - I plan to use the letters of the alphabet as a basis for my blog posts over the next several weeks!
Images by A Muse (polka dot lowercase small letters, schoolhouse from the Simple Celebrations clear set). SU black, kraft, Summer Sun, and white cardstocks. SU white pigment ink, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Prismacolor Crimson Red marker, SU pastels, ribbon, dimensionals, Marvy apple punch.
