Crafter's Companion August Challenge

Morning me lovelies. 
It is new challenge time at Crafter's Companion and the theme this month is School...this can be anything school related and you could win £30 voucher to spend on lots of goodies ! Just remember you need to use at least one Crafter's Companion product. 

Now not having kids i will admin this theme really did test me...especially when seeing what the other dt girls have created ! 
When i think of school i always think of blackboard...mainly because I was one of those strange children who liked writing and cleaning the board...I was (and some would probably say I still am) a strange child. 
So i decided to create a blackboard style card.

The papers were the May download of the month from Crafter's Companion and are really fab paper's. 
I created the card blank using Crafter's Companion Kraft Card ...this really is the best Kraft card I have tried....and i have tried ALOT, it is nice and heavyweight so it is perfect for card blanks. 
The blue card is from Core'dinations Brights pad  and the black card which I used for the blackboard is Crafter's Companion Matt Black Card
I used my Zig white pen to doodle on the black card, and the chalk is a toothpick cut down and coloured white. 
I was quite pleased with how it turned out and I hope you all like it :)

Happy Crafting
