Today's challenge on SCS was to use chalk as the background and again over an image stamped in versamark. The technique is called chalk pouncing.
I chanced the technique a little bit for my card. I stamped the main image and colored it with copic markers before chalking the background with a coral chalk. I then stamped the Linen background stamp over the entire image with Versamark ink, and applied coral and caramel chalk over the top. If you look at the closeup below you can see the linen.
The background of the card is my favorite part... I simply stamped the flower part of the image along all the edges, then colored it in. I also used the chalk technique on the background.
The stamp I used is a new release from My Favorite Thing's Annie LaPoint line. I find all these herbal images so soothing, plus they are good for a variety of situations from birthday cards to get well!
Thanks for looking!
