Cu(te) Kiddo heading back to school

I'm posting for the Chalk Ah Lot blog again on this lovely Sunday. The challenge is an image of a person using chalk. My card uses a Stamp N Plus stamp that you can find HERE.  I colored her in with powdered chalk mixed with Elmer's glue and water. Then I painted her in. You can find powdered chalks HERE. I used the colors GEM and FLESH along with Teddy Bear mixed with Dusk. The purple is called Pearl Purple however its not listed on the website and therefore if you were interested in ordering it you would need to call Luann at 715-271-1873.

For the rest of my card I used patterned paper by DCWV, cardstock by Recollections, a die cut by Jillibean soup, embossing folder by Gina Marie and a die by Quickutz.

The black die cut is something new for me, Chalkboard paint by Plaid. I followed the directions for its use however I painted it on watercolor paper instead of the canvas like I was planning on. It still turned out well but I just wonder what it will be like on canvas. I'm not sure how to use it with the powdered chalks yes. It will take some time to play to get use to it. I thought the chalkboard tied into Back to School with the little girl and her backpack. 

So thanks for stopping by and checking out my card. 

Stop back tomorrow for a huge Manly Monday post. Tons of awesome inspiration. 

Challenges: Anything goes with chalk {chalk on the little girl} Little school girl-the title was my inspiration to use this little girl stamp
