This week on Creative-Sketches you have a Sketch and Technique challenge which means using
the above sketch and chalks/pastels . If you would like to join in on the fun go to:
http://creative-sketches.com and submit your card by clicking on linky tools. Now onto my card:
One of my favorite stamp sets is Element of Style, I love the Vintage look and feel it gives to cards. So when I challenge was to use Chalks it was a no brainier which stamp set I chose.
Card Stock Old Olive, Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla
Stamp pads Crumb Cake, Old Olive
Stamp sets Element of Style,Sincere Salutations
Embossing Folder Square Lattice
Ribbons Pretty in Pink satin, and Victorian lace
Punch Decorative Label
Chalks Rose Red, Pretty in Pink and Old Olive
I loved the softness the chalks and pearls brought to this card. I stamped the Elements of Style rose on the Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla card stock and stamped with Crumb Cake ink. Then used my aqua painter to color in the roses and leaves to intense the color. Once dried I ran both pieces thru the embossing folder for texture. A little ribbon and pearls for added interest. I decide to put a birthday salutation on this one since I have a lot of birthdays coming up in our family.
