Heather from Oz-somestamps has been using chalks recently and that really inspired me to pull out my sets... The Angel Company has a nice selection and I had forgotten how shimmery and beautiful these chalk sets are!
I stamped Victorian Elements in the Versamark Dazzle pad and then rubbed a red and green chalk from the Jewel Tones family. Between the sparkle of the Versamark pad and the chalks, this card is so shimmery in real life!
Card Materials: all stamps and papers from The Angel Company
Stamps: Victorian Elements, Savvy Sayings
Accessories: lace, plastic pearls, sizzix flower punch, Brown bazzill, red DCWV, Noir palette ink, Versamark Dazzle, Jewel Tone chalks
When I was gluing the pearls in place, I dropped a bit of glue on the brown panel and hoped that it would dry well and not show. No such luck...sigh, and of course the rest of the card was all glued down. In the end it turned out well I think, to add this strip of lace - it added to the whole card and subdued that brown a bit. Phew! I wish it had been sunny today to take a better picture but this was the best I could get, even fiddling with the photo. Take care - I hope you are having a great week and I appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog!
