"Thinking of you" card with chalk technique....

Hello everyone!
I hope you all are having a great weekend. :)

I wanted to tell you all how much I appreciate your comments! Thank you for your sweet and heart felt complements!!! They truly mean a lot to me!!! So Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!

This is a card that I made for my so very talented friend Kim from Memories In Thyme...
She asked how I did the flower from my "Wish" card you can see it HERE... Sorry Kim, I don't have a link to a video or any other tutorial, this is kind of something that I've seen or read while checking out blogs. Don't really have an actually link... :)

But this technique is so easy to make. There's also several ways that you can do this. For the "Wish" card I stamped with embossing ink on white card and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I jut took my SU blending pen, got some chalk on it and colored the flowers like I would with a brush. That gave me a water coloring look. :)

Now for this card that I'm going to show you today I stamped on brown cardstock with embossing ink and embossed it with Zing "Brown Sugar" embossing powder.

As you can see in the photo I just took that like sponge thing that came with my chalk pad and I just rubbed some red on the flowers. And that's it. :)

Kim, I hope this helps!!!

And here is the finished card! It would have looked just as fine with out the chalk on the flowers. But I like how the chalk adds just a little something extra to the card.

And up close!! :) as you can see there's not a lot of chalk on there... so don't worry how much you use. The main thing is to have FUN!!!

Stamps used:
CTMH "Happiness" and "For Every Occasion" stamp sets.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!!! :) Hope you'll give this technique a try, it's so much FUN!!!
