New chalk project


 There's a new chalk challenge at Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafe:
Include green and chalk on your card or project. 

Chalk doesn't necessarily have to be green, just green somewhere on your card and some chalk somewhere on your card. Please tell me where the chalk is in your blog post. {thanks}

For my card I started off by trying to paint the chipboard frame with Elmer's glue and powdered chalk Cool Green. It peeled off very easily and I didn't like that. So I flipped the chipboard over revealing the sticky side and decided to pat green chalk on the sticky part. It worked like a charm.  

The stamped image in the center of the frame is Shamrock Spray and can be found HERE. In the shamrocks I glued on an individual bead for the centers. The cool green powdered chalk can be found HERE. The rest of the supplies for this card include patterned paper by Best Creations (stripes) and The Paper Studio (shamrocks) The brads are by American Crafts, frame by Prima, circle punch by EK Success, scallop die cut cut out using my Cricut and finally cardstock by DCWV (green) and Recollections (black and white). The beads in the centers of the shamrocks are a recycled item with no name on the tube and the sentiment rub on is from a crop where they didn't give us the packaging, just the rub-ons in an unmarked baggie.

Thanks for stopping by.
