This week at Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafe the challenge is Chalk as a background.
I thought I would show you how I made this background.
I used glue with my chalk this time.
I painted the blue chalk on top of the sheet of watercolor paper.
Then painted a little bit of green on the bottom.
I stamped my image using Memento black ink. Let both your glue/chalk mixture dry before stamping the image.
Got out my Spellbinders scallop oval die and lined it up to the image.
Ran it through my Cuttlebug once to cut and a second time to emboss it.
And here is my card.
Patterned paper by MME and DCWV
cardstock by Recollections
Border die and scallop oval by Spellbinders
helm die cut by Cricut Life is a Beach
Braiding cord by Allary (bought at Wal-Mart)
Sentiment stamp by Stamp N plus Scrap N
Ink by Memento
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
Don't forget to check back tomorrow for my Manly Monday card. I really like the card I'm going to show you.
