Chalk Ah Lot card

Hi all. Welcome back to week 2 of Chalk Ah Lot's animal with chalk challenge. I have a new Christmas card to share using powdered chalk and a kitten stamp by Stamp N Plus. The powdered chalk can be found HERE and the kitten stamp can be found HERE

I colored the kitten in with powdered chalk mixed with water. It's the perfect medium to color in images and there's no need to spray a fixative because the powdered chalk stays on the image. I also used the same mixture to place splotches of the flesh colored chalk on the white cardstock around the image. The sentiment stamp also by Stamp N Plus can be found HERE; it is stamped with Stampin Up ink onto K and Co patterned paper.

The candy patterned paper on my card is by October Afternoon and the red background paper is by My Mind's Eye. The green cardstock is by Sunborn and white cardstock by Recollections. I used some older green lace my mom found in her basement for the bottom. I doubled it up in the center to give it a little dimension and then placed an unknown flower over the center to cover the adhesive. This type of dimension seems to go through the postal system without extra postage. 

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Cute, cute, cute! Love your kitty card! That's a great idea to mix powdered chalk with water. I have chalks and never use them because I don't have a fixative - I'm going to try this. Thanks and have a great day!
