Hi, I was inspired to make this card by a technique that Donna did on the Annabelle Stamps blog last week. It's a new technique for me, stamping an image in Versamark ink, then sponging or daubing chalk over it. I love the soft colours it gives!
I stamped a couple of the grass images from the All Things Grow set from Annabelles. I fussy cut the taller ones and glued them on to be a feature. The butterfly is an old stamp from my sister's collection and I coloured it with chalk using a cotton bud. The clouds are Memory Box dies that I borrowed.
The sentiment is from Annabelle's Standing Tall set. I've been using it a lot lately! Stamped in Versafine and clear embossed.
I'm entering the challenge at Annabelle Stamps. Here's the sketch.
I used white ribbon as the vertical stripes on my card. They're a bit hard to see in the photo.
I'm also entering the challenge at Make It Monday, where the theme is anything goes, and to share creativity. Since my dark green layer is a snippet (there's a die been cut out of the middle of it!), I can also visit the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
Thanks for visiting :)
