Chalk Ah Lot Nautical

 The week's challenge (#40) over at Chalk Ah Lot is nautical with chalk. For my card today I cut out some die cuts from the Cricut cartridge Life's a Beach and chalked them up. The waves are size 11/2 on white cardstock and then I utilized the shift option by cutting out the outline wave on two of them. I then combined powdered chalk and paint from Stamp N Plus and painted over the white cardstock with the colors Jules Blue, Sky and Jade. I combined the different colors on my paint brush and then used the streaking property of the chalk to create deeper colors. The sentiment is a die cut from the same cartridge that I painted with Gem and Foggy Powdered chalk. The die cut it is on is by Sizzix and I inked those edges with Ranger Distress ink. The eyelets are from my stash and the rope is from Stampin Up.

Thanks for stopping by.
