Chalk Challenge #33

I'm posting this card for the chalk challenge at Chalk-Ah-Lot. The challenge is more than one flower with chalk. I used stamps, powdered chalk and paint by Stamp N Plus. The flower stamp is not on the website but can be ordered by calling Luann at 715-271-1873. The sentiment is in a set that can be found HERE

For my card today I combined powdered chalk and paint together and painted in the image. I love the look of this powdered chalk technique. I used Hero Arts Black ink for the stamps. This ink works great for the mixture. No smearing. The background paper is by Basic Grey (Serendipity) and the other patterned paper is by MME. I used a Fiskars border punch for the decorative edge. The black paper is packaging to my Darice embossing folder. I'm always looking for ways to recycle especially as we get closer to Earth Day. 

Thanks for looking.
