Chalked background card

My card today uses a Statue of Liberty stamp by

It can be found at:

I stamped the image with Versa Mark ink onto white cardstock and heat embossed it with Stampin Up silver embossing powder. From there I die cut the image out with a Spellbinders die and while the paper was still in the die I inked the top with blue and the bottom with green distress inks.

To create the background for my card I mixed together paint with powdered chalk both by Stamp N Plus. I used two different stencils by Tim Holtz/Ranger and applied the mixture to the watercolor paper using a cosmetic wedge. You have to be careful not to swipe the wedge over the stencil but rather tap up and down. The watercolor paper is by Strathmore and the paper behind it is by Color Aid. 

I embellished the card with pre-made die cuts by Studio G and ribbon by Martha Stewart. 

Thanks for looking.
