Let's talk Chalk!

HELLO friends.

I have this chalk set I confess I never use...  and I thought... "let's go use it"..




So I made this card using Unity Stamps, spellbinders, patterned paper, cardstock and tulle.


I stamped the image in white cardstock, then in patterned paper, then in another solid color paper and then in white again...  Crazy huh?



Well, from the patterned paper I cut the table mat in one color, then the plates and spoon with the solid color paper, then the content (seems like love soup to me) in white, is painted with chalks.... Yes, yellow and pink.


I also painted with pint chalk the edges of the shape, and added some in the other patterned paper I used as base, to give my imperfect touch...

Tulle is white but was sprayed with pink mist to give it some color.  I also added glossy accents to the hearts in the soup (the main ingredient!).


I had fun using the chalk and hope I can use it more in the future.

Did you like my card?  Hope yes....  Leave me your comment and thank you!


PS:  Tomorrow I will participate in the 4th edition of the PRSE (Puerto Rico Scrapbook Event)...  I'm so excited.  I will have 4 great classes with wonderful teachers.  I can't wait.
