Meet Madison...

...she is one of the digi images that came as part of the second stage of the CDAC Progressive Challenges (Madison is from Stamp-n-doodle).

As this little cutie obviously has an apple for her teacher, I thought I'd go with a school type theme.
I created the look of a black/chalk board from black bazzill CS and used Zig Chalk writers to give the effect of writing on the board.
Isn't she a sweetie. I've coloured her with my Copic pens and mounted her on 3D foam to raise her up from the card background.
I haven't used my chalk writers for a while - they are strange pens to use as nothing shows up until the ink's a bit like magic watching the writing appear LOL.

I haven't added anything else as I thought this was all that this card needed.

There is a new challenge blog that has just launched called "Di's Digi Designs" and as their very first challenge is 'Anything goes' I thought I'd use this card as my entry. Why don't you pop over there and take a look............................

Such a cute card Toni, and I love the chalkboard effect! Your seeing double cards are great too, it's a tough call as to whether the white or kraft is best! :)
