To create the blackboard section I used some black card stock, I stamped the sentiment using some Dovecraft individual alphabet stamps to give a handwritten effect, for this I used Versamark then embossed with white embossing powder. I then used a white gel pen to add some "Math's" I hate maths!! I applied some white chalk so the black wasn't quite so stark and made the black board look used. I then mounted the board on a brown frame created using a Nellie Snellen Frame Die.
For the layers I used some cuttings from an old book which I added chalk and ink to the edges to make them a little more aged, then adhered them to some brown card stock, I used pink chalk to colour the card blank as I felt there wasn't going to be quite enough colour on the card. To pretty it up a little I added some lace and ribbon and some Mulberry Roses and Cherry Blossoms, I added a little brown ink the to the Roses and some Diamond Stickles to the Cherry Blossoms to add a bit of sparkle, then just 3 pearls top and bottom to finish it off.
