I created the background by Heat embossing with white embossing powder, then blending a couple of colors of Distress Inks on top. Then I stamped and paper-pieced the easel (creating using the chalkboard technique) and you see the hemp cord? That covers a little wonky mistake I made embossing. I love using pretty ribbon/twine to cover little happy accidents!
Hope you're having a great evening. If you're doing any crafting tonight, you still have time to do the current Pinspired Challenge.....just sayin' ;)
