Good morning friends. Playing along with Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday challenge today. Melissa Phillips has a great video (and beautiful card!) on combining chalk, stamps, and impression plates that you can find out all about right here . The only impression plate I have is the Herringbone one (same one Melissa used), so that and some chalks that don't see much light of day in my stamp room, were my starting point for my card. This is a really fun technique and here's what I came up with:
I used the flowers and leaves from "Mum's the Word" stamp set and love how they pop off the background of chalk and the Herringbone IP. My vellum tag is the smaller die part of PTI's Tag Sale #8. On top of my flourish, I added a couple of the Button Stacks and a grosgrain bow. Also had to use the Filigree Border Die, just because it's SO pretty! My sentiment is from "Beautiful Dahlia Additions" and a couple clear sequins finished it off.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and make sure to check out all the beautiful cards over on Nichole's blog .
