Chalk Ah Lot card


My card is for this weeks Chalk Ah Lot challenge, Father's Day or masculine card with chalk. It uses THIS owl stamp and the word part of THIS stamp both by Stamp N Plus. My powdered chalk, also by Stamp N Plus, was combined with paint and used with a paint brush to "color in" the owl image. I used colors Dandy for the eyes, Teddy Bear for the body and Foggy for the nose and toes.

The patterned paper is by Basic grey, cardstock by Oriental Trading Co and Recollections. The embossing folder is by Darice and I've inked the edges of the cardstock panels with Colorbox Chalk inks. The yellow banner like label die cut is cut out using my Cricut the paper is by CGull. The tie brag is by Eyelet Outlet. I think if I added a grad cap brad to the owl it could be used as a graduation card.

There's a little more white space on my card then usual. I'm branching out and trying something new. Honestly I didn't want to cover up the tree embossing because I think it matches the owl stamp really well.

Thanks so much for looking.
