Never any waste with Chalk Clouds!

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

This is one of my favourite samples from the Chalk Clouds One Day Special that I did on Hochanda last month. I love the backgrounds you can create from the waste ink.

To re-cap, the background is created from misting waste ink on my Craft Sheet with water and then picking it up onto some Coconut White Card. I like to do this one colour at a time and allow each one to dry before adding another. This way the colours stay separate and layer on top of one another.

This background comprises Enchanted Blossom, Subtle Sage and Terracotta.

I stamped the Woodware Mosiac Background onto my Chalk Cloud Background using Onyx Black Versafine Ink. I cut it out using Sue Wilson's Essential Sized Rectangles. I matted onto Black Card and popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Vintage Inspiration Stamp Set using Versafine Ink. I cut it out using Sue's Pierced Flags and cut the next sized die out of Black Card.

I created another background with just Enchanted Blossom Chalk Cloud. I made a flower from it using Sue's Succulent Garden Die Set and added a Small Black Dazzler to the centre. I cut a couple of leaves out of Black Card using Sue's Whimsical Leaves Die Set.

I am running a Chalk Clouds Masterclass up at Creative Expressions on Wednesday 6th September. We'll be using Chalk Clouds with various techniques and also looking at Distress Oxides. Places are limted to just 8 people. You can book via my website here.
