I got my chalks out again to create soft winter card, using a Sheena Douglass stamp set called Ornate Snowflakes. It's from her A Little Bit Scenic line of stamp sets.
I started by cutting all of my card stock panels to size with my Clever Cut 5-in-1 tool. Then I added both Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy distress inks to all of the edges with a foam blender.
On the larger panel, I stamped the snowflake flourish in Memento Desert Sand ink. Next I stamped random snowflakes in Versamark ink. I applied chalks from the I Kan'Dee Earth Tones collection directly over the stamped images, until I achieved the coverage I wanted.
I stamped the sentiment in Memento Bamboo Leaves ink, and repeated same process with the chalks.
I finished the whole thing up with some ribbon! I shared another card with this technique recently; if you've never used your chalks this way you should give it a try!
