Ready for a new Act?

I hope so! A new challenge over at Stacey's Stamping Stage has just launched, and the colours are oh-SO-fantastic!!
I actually struggled with my sample, partly because I'm low on mojo, and partly because sadly I don't have relevant colours of ink! Oh I really need to enrich my supply of inks in the near future! *sigh*
I tried to do my best, and here's what I came up with:

supplies: cardstock: Quill; paper: Grant; stamps: Hero Arts (flourish), Papertrey Ink (sentiment); ink: VersaMark; stazOn Olive; clear embossing powder: Hero Arts; decorative chalks: Pebbles Inc.; glitter, ribbon: craft supply

I chalked over the embossed image, but I ended up with a different effect to the one that I was expecting to have. The embossed image would in most cases stay white (provided, of course, that it's been afterwards gently wiped with the tissue), but this particular stamp apparently has a porous surface, that caused it to turn a deeper shade of green. It's not too bad though...?

This was my first go with this lovely stamp, therefore I'm entering this card into WT261 - What's New?

I hope you'll join us for the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 21 - you could be one of the next Show Stoppers!
The magnificent girls from the Curtain Call Crew also prepared some eye candy for you, so visit their lovely blogs, and leave them some love!
