Chalk Ah Lot Card

Happy Sunday. I'm back again with the Chalk Ah Lot challenge of anything goes with chalk sponsored by Kenny K. I am using the Jasmine digi for my card. I printed her on watercolor paper by Ranger and colored her in with distress inks and a water pen. I then filled the glasses in with Glossy Accents which is also by Ranger. After all that business I die cut her out using a Spellbinders die and inked the inside with distress ink. The nice thing about this label 4 die is that there is a small and a large set. I like to mat the die with a smaller outside frame then the regular label dies have. I'm not sure if it is an 1/8 or a 1/4 but it is definitely smaller then say label 1 from die to die.

My chalk is in the background. This new to me Darice embossing folder is quickly becoming my favorite and I had some left over powdered chalk mixed with paint and decided to try it on the folder. I took a paint brush and applied the mixture to one side of the folder then ran it through my Cuttlebug. I sprayed it with a little water mixed with Perfect Pearls and let it dry. I used watercolor paper by Stratmore and then the black cardstock is by Recollections.

The sentiment is by Paper Smooches and I inked the edges with distress ink.

Hop on over to Chalk Ah Lot and link up your chalk project today.
Thanks for looking.
