make it monday

this week's make it monday challenge was to use dry brushing on a project.
i used black paint for my dry brushing to make a chalkboard kind of feel for my back to school card (i don't even have kids and i can't wait for school to start! the neighborhood kids have been tormenting my dog this week, banging sticks against our fence and throwing water on her, oh september, where are you?) i made my own ink pad with reinkers for the lined paper in the center of the card :)

i was super happy with how this card turned out (even if it did take me all day to get it right...)
