Chalk Ah Lot Easter Challenge

New challenge at Chalk Ah Lot that starts this morning and the theme is

Easter with chalk
Please be sure to to mention where you used chalk in your blog post. TY

I made a bunch of cards yesterday with stamps and powdered chalk from our sponsor

Stamp N Plus 


Today's card features Easter egg stamps that I stamped on Tim Holtz distress watercolor paper with Hero Arts black ink and colored them in with distress markers. I applied distress ink to the edges of the sentiment and then highlighted it and the eggs with Stardust powdered chalk. The Easter basket die cut is really, really old that I found in my stash of Easter things. The patterned paper is by Doodlebug and pink paper by Making Memories. The Easter letter stickers are by Creative Memories. I added ribbon found in my stash to the top of the basket. The Easter bunny die cut is cut out using my Cricut.

Thanks so much for looking.
