Chalk Ah Lot Sunflowers Stencil

Our challenge at Chalk Ah Lot, green with chalk, continues for another week. I made this card using a metal stencil with white embossing paste and let it dry completely. Then I took powdered chalk by Stamp N Plus colors Teddy Bear (brown), Lime (green), and Dandy (yellow) mixed with water and a paint brush to paint the colors onto the raised surface. I had die cut the image and that shape didn't fit with the patterned paper scrap that I had so I cut off the sides of the die cut and distressed them with scissors and then distress ink. I add some pearls by Want 2 Scrap to the edges of the die cut and then on the sentiment to make my visual triangle.

The patterned paper is by Scribble Scrabble that I distressed the edges with distress ink by Ranger. The yellow cardstock is unknown but I do know that it is embossed with a Gina Marie embossing folder called Victorian Lace. The sentiment stamp is by Gina Marie Stamps on Great Bible quotes stamp set

Thanks for looking.
