Back to School

Today's post will be short, because I still need to stamp a couple of cards and a new episode of Lost is only a half hour away!
The pastel technique featured on this card takes us back to our younger days in the classroom. Did you ever draw on a chalkboard with colored chalks? Remember how bold and vibrant the colors looked? Well, this technique is reminiscent of that look and so it is aptly named the chalkboard technique.
Although typically chalkboards are black, because we're already using black card stock to create our pullin' pastels card at the March 27 stampin' pastels class, I thought on this card we could improvise with an elegant eggplant chalkboard, matted with barely banana card stock on a rose red base. I'm pleased with the way it turned out! What do you think?

Be sure to come back tomorrow to see a photo of another pastel project!

This is so pretty with the eggplant. The colors just glow.
