Luv me some chalk!

Grrr! My mojo was very low most of the day today... I've been struggling to create something that makes sense, and - what is quite unusual to me - I was starting projects that never were finished. Suddenly, late in the evening mojo decided to come back to me, but I'd so like to have back the time I lost fiddling around... ;)

I'm quite happy with my two evening creations though - they were super fun to make, perhaps because I was using one of my favourite techniques - Chalkboard Technique. It's the theme of the JUGS11 challenge, and I used it on both cards.

Here's the first one - the sketch that it follows comes from Peachy Keen Stamps (Challenge 18):


I also used the colours from CC249 - So Saffron, Mellow Moss, Melon Mambo, and Neutrals of Choice.
I used a printed out digi DP, and the stamps are Inkadinkado (damask) and Sullivans (sentiment). The damask was stamped with white Versa Mark ink, and sponged with a dark yellow chalk from the Pebbles Inc. Basic Brights palette.
The finishing touches are the ribbon and Kaisercraft rhinestones.

Next card follows the WSC110 sketch:


I decided to apply several different colours of chalk this time, to make the flowers resemble those of Mallow, one of my most loved plants :)
The sentiment was stamped normally, for I didn't want such small letters look fuzzy.
Both stamps are from Sullivans.

Thank you for visiting tonight, I'll see you again soon!
