Chalk Ah Lot

I'm posting for the Chalk Ah Lot challenge which is Embossing with chalk. 

My card features a Rose Block stamp and sentiment stamp by Stamp N Plus. I stamped the Rose Block stamp with Hero Arts black ink on white cardstock by Neenah Solar White. I mixed powdered chalk and paint together and painted the image in using a variety of colors. You can see all the coloroptions Stamp N Plus has in their website www.powderedchalk.com. The sentiment stamp is stamped with Versa Fine pigment ink onto Cosmo Cricket patterned papers Nutmeg pad. The edges of the patterned paper have been inked with Ranger Distress ink. 

I dry embossed the kraft cardstock by Recollections using a Dreamweaver leaf stencil. After I ran it through my Cuttlebug I inked the edges with Ranger Distress ink and sprayed the whole piece with a combination of water and Perfect Pearls also by Ranger Industries. I do love sparkle.  The ribbon is by Offray which adhered to my patterned paper card front so you wouldn't see the ribbon attached on the inside of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
