Hi Bloggers.

Had a great day at Phill's shop yesterday - so very busy!

Here's today's card -

This card shows the lovely CS Chalk Clouds on Black Card.

For the background, I stamped the Woodware Travel Background using Sweet Violet, Terracotta and Subtle Sage Chalk Clouds, applying the ink using a Smoothie. I cut it out using Sue Wilson's Essential Rectangles Die Set and matted onto another piece of Black Card using CE Mounting Cushion.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Vintage Inspiration Stamp Set using Subtle Sage. I cut it out using a die from Sue's Indonesian Background Die Set and edged it with the same Chalk Cloud.

I painted a Flourish Pop-em with CS Black Gesso. Once dry, I added the same Chalk Clouds that I used on the background, applying the ink with Natural Sponges.

I used my Natural Sponges again to cover a piece of Black Card and used Sue's Succulent Garden Die Set to make a flower. I used Sue's Sweet Williams Die Set for the centre of the flower and added a 3mm Black Pearl.

I completed my card by adding a 5mm Black Pearl to each corner of my background.
