Paper Smooches Sparks challenge - may 13th-19th Designer challenge

Hey there out there!, Today i have a cute card i created for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge this week.
the Challenge was Designer Crafts....

 And the sketch is shown below.

I decided to go down the chalkboard/painting theme with the sketch ans those banners were just calling out to be used as paint drips! and i had a new Paper Smooches set called i heart art which i had not opened yet.

Here is the card i created.

As you can see i made a chalk effect board which i stamped with staz on white opaque ink, dried then re stamped with embossing ink pad and embossed with white powder. When embossing the black card i made sure that some of the left over embossing powder stuck too so it looked like left over chalk. then i grabbed my copic markers and coloured in parts of the embossed images.
i lastly made a little paint tube and coloured it, cut it out and adhered it to the black card, i know your are saying you would not use paint on a chalk board! well a little creative licence did not hurt anyone :)

I clear embossed the paint brushes at the bottom then layered the black card onto brown card to make the "chalkboard" frame.
A few blotches of extra white ink and the card was complete!!

Here are the copics i used for this card.

I hope you like this card. If you would like to enter the challenge head on over to Paper Smooches Sparks Blog and have a go!!
