Chalk board greetings

I bought this chalkboard at Hobby Lobby for about $7.00. I've been wanting to try my hand at sign making. I saw this saying on Pinterest and It just made me laugh.  I used my Silhouette machine to cut out a stencil.  It is really hard not to drag your sleeve through it after you draw.  I screwed it up twice so I had to chalk the background in to smooth out the flaws. I used a tiny small dry paintbrush to remove the chalk to make a shadow. It worked like a charm.

I love how this turned out. I took it to a party for a gift exchange. So now I want to make another one for me. I am going to use a board and paint for my next one so it doesn't smear.
