It's Tuesday, so it's time for a new Flourishes Challenge. This week Cheryl is our hostess and the theme is Less=More! And she also put a NO COLORING clause in to the mix! Check out all the details on how to play along with the challenge on the Flourishes Blog.

Jenny Gropp  -  you are here!

 When I read the challenge note of no coloring... I was was thrown for a minute, because usually that's exactly what I like to do with Flourishes images! But I quickly got in to the spirit of the challenge and decided to use the Chalkboard Technique along with the Just my Type set. 

 I heat embossed on flat (no texture) black card stock using Detail White embossing powder. I used my finger to rub on some Moonlight White Brilliance ink.

I left the inside blank for an any themed card. Finished card size is an A2.
