Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

The background on this one was created by mopping up all the excess ink on my Craft Sheet from previous Chalk Cloud projects onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I used the main colours on my background for my stamping and embellishments. I trimmed my background piece and inked around the edges with Toasted Rose CS Chalk Cloud using a Smoothie. I matted onto Black Card and then onto Coconut White Card.

I stamped the Woodware Vintage Fabric Stamp onto Coconut White Card using Blue Lagoon Chalk Cloud applying the ink to the stamp via a Smoothie. I tore around the edges and then inked with Sweet Apple Chalk Cloud.

I stamped the eye from the Woodware Eyes Stamp Set using Toasted Rose Chalk Cloud.

I stamped the INSPIRE test from the Woodware Vintage Inspiration Stamp Set, again using Toasted Rose. I tore around the eye and the sentiment using my Tim Holz Ruler to get a more even tear and then inked around the edges with Sweet Apple. I stamped the 'Always try to' from the Vintage Inspiration Stamp Set using Onyx Black Versafine Ink.

I covered 2 of the flourishes on the Flourishes Pop-ems sheet with a thin coat of White CS Gesso. I popped them out and then covered with Sweet Apple CS Chalk Cloud by pouncing on with my Smoothie to get a good coverage. I inked up the Woodware Crazy Mosaic Background with Toasted Rose Chalk Cloud and stamped onto the flourishes.

I made a couple of flowers out of more of my mopped up ink background and Black Card using Sue Wilson's Succulent Garden and Sweet Williams Die Sets. I added a little Toasted Rose Chalk Cloud to the tips of the petals and a 5mm Black Pearl to the centres.

I completed my card by adding a Small Black Circle Dazzler to each corner of my background.
