Chalk Cloud One Day Special continues today

Hi Bloggers.

Hope you're enjoying the Chalk Cloud One Day Special. They really are fabulous inks. I have more shows today at 9am, 1pm and 5pm.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I added Misty Grey Chalk Cloud to a piece of Coconut White Card using a Smoothie. I dampened a Natural Sponge and used it to bleach out some of the colour. I then stamped one of the little stamps from the Woodware Mosaic Bird Stamp Set randomly across the background. I inked the very edge my background with Princess Pink Chalk Cloud using a Smoothie. I matted onto a couple of pieces of Coconut White Card, edging one with Princess Pink Chalk Cloud.

I stamped one of the images and a sentiment from the Woodware Succulents Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Onyx Black Versafine Ink. I coloured in using Chalk Clouds - I used Misty Grey, Subtle Sage, Blue Lagoon, Princess Pink and Toasted Rose. I popped a little onto my Craft Sheet, using a Smoothie, and picked the colour up with a Water Brush. I cut it out using a die from Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares Set B and inked through the die with Misty Grey Chalk Cloud. I edged the outside of the die cut with Princess Pink Chalk Cloud.

I inked another piece of Coconut White Card with Misty Grey Chalk Cloud.I popped the Little Boxes Mask on top and then misted with water. I removed the mask and put aside to dry. Once dry, I popped the mask back in place and inked through the mask with Princess Pink Chalk Cloud. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo but I do have one in a different colour way so you can get the idea of what it looked like. This one is in Sweet Apple and Terracotta -

I used my background to make flowers using Sue's Succulent Garden Die Set. I made the centres for the flowers using Sue's Sweet Williams Die Set. I cut a couple of leaves out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Whimsical Leaves Die Set. I touched the tips of the leaves with Princess Pink Chalk Cloud.

I completed my card by adding a 3mm White Pearl to the centre of my flowers and a 5mm White Pearl in each corner of my background.
