January ARTastic Challenge

Hi there
This year I am hoping to join in a few of the great challenges that are around and my lovely friend Debi told me about the fabulous ARTastic blog! 

This month their inspiration is: 
January inspiration,  My Blue Angel by 3D chalk artist - Jenny McCracken.

And the criteria is:
The use of chalk or the addition of wings on your entry
or be adventurous and use both :)

I decided to make a valentines card! 
I have coloured the background using chalks and a Crafter Workshop template, added layers of papers and vellum and embellished with the cute chipboard heart and wings.

I had a lot of fun with this...
So why not head over to ARTastic and check out their challenges!
