Chalkboard Technique - using Whisper White Craft Ink and Shimmer Paint

I needed to come up with more Christmas Card samples, so I scoured the internet for card sketches, and came across Mojo Monday.  This is an excellent place for inspiration!  I used this sketch along with some supplies came up with this idea :
Taking pictures of the card turned out to be a difficult task, so I had to use a scanner because the shimmer paint was reflecting so much you couldn't see the bird :)

The scan still doesn't do it justice, the green leaves glow like neon in real life.

For instructions on the chalkboard technique - see here

*** chalkboard technique works with frost white shimmer paint, the shimmer shows through the chalk!! - I used shimmer paint for the pacific point colored snowflakes ***
