I did the heart with the ruffled flowers learned in Marsha Winbeckler's class: Fondant Ruffles. I did the chalk board affect using Americolor's white paint (Love Is In The Air). After it dried, I placed a rectangular shape piece of paper over the message, then dusted white edible powder over the corners of the paper; after removing the paper: Wah-lah! Chalkboard effect. For the bottom tier, I cut black fondant strips into rectangular shape, then used the same Americolor white paint I used for the message, to paint over the black strips using a small paint brush to get the rustic fence affect!
