Thinking of You
For my Thinking of You card I used a stamp and powdered chalks sold by Stamp N Plus. The sentiment can be found HERE X2090. The powdered chalks are Chalk-Ah-Lots, which can be found HERE. The colors I used were: Blush, Nifty and Peach.
The oval was cut and embossed with a Spellbinders die and the butterfly was cut with a die by Marianne's Creatables. Rhinestone jewels were used as embellishments along with a touch of Stickles on the edges of the wings.
I used a Staples brand of matte photo paper and applied the chalks with a sponge. This paper has a felt-like texture and this quality combined with its bright white color provided a perfect media to bring out the vibrancy of these beautiful chalks. Staples often has the paper for free when you submit a rebate form. You can find the paper HERE. The paper is cardstock weight and I have been using it as my "go to" white paper for stamping and cardmaking.
Thanks for visiting my blog and have a great week. Paulette
