Another fun summertime thing to do – play with sidewalk chalk! I know my kids love to do it – I used to find whole towns of roads all over, drawings of all kinds and of course, lots of practicing their names and letters – what fun! Let’s get back to those fun childhood days, but with our own set of chalks!
Now, this card is a sympathy card – another one I sent in that was rejected for publication, but I love the colors and technique of this one so I thought I’d share. The stamps are from Hero Arts – watercolor flowers – and I just fell in love with the way they are like watercolors and soft flowers. I stamped them first with versamark ink and then while it was still wet, I used my chalks and colored them. I did the same for the butterfly on just a scrap of paper and then cut it out and ‘sculpted’ it a bit. I only tacked it to the card thru the middle so that it could stand out a bit. I tied a bow and glue dotted it on top of the flower image. I added it to a strip of purple dotted Bazzill and then on top of a long kraft card. I added the sentiment on the bottom on its own strip.
Thanks for stopping in today to see what I posted – hopefully it gives you a bit of inspiration! Enjoy!
