Chalk Painting

Welcome to the Club Scrap Artist Team Blog Hop! This month we've been challenged with using the Enchanted Forest unmounted stamp sheet, Girlfriends unmounted stamp sheet, and the Sunflowers Sparkle Stickers.
 
Join us on the hop to see what this talented team has created with these supplies.  If you've arrived here from the very crafty Donna,  you're in the right spot. If you'd like to start at the beginning head over to Club Scrap and see what Karen has created for you.
 
When I first spotted the twig stamp from Girlfriends, I thought this would make a beautiful wreath. but when I finished stamping the "wreath" in a circular form I thought it looked more like a snowflake. The inside is quite messy so I did what I learned from Jac at retreat...cover it up with chalk paint!

 
Once I painted the chalk on the center I still didn't like it. I didn't know what to do with the center until I found some snowflake die cuts. I pulled the center gem off and replaced it with the larger sparkle sticker.  I then added a Wink of Stella to add shimmer and now I love it!
 
Club Scrap papers, gem and stamps. Wink of Stella. Dazzles stickers. K&Co. snowflake.


Since I had the chalk paint out, I might as well keep going. Here I placed a wide strip of washi tape on my card and painted chalk paint on the washi and swiping off onto the card. Removed the tape and use the open area for stamping.
 
 
This final card is really directly out of the Stamped Bouquet class Jac taught. I stamped the floral image in parchment pigment ink, painted chalk paint over some of the flowers and restamped in permanent black ink.
 
I used masks over the flowers I wanted to keep white while stamping in black.
 
 
As a thank you for joining us today, I have both sets of unmounted stamps available as a free giveaway.
I'll randomly choose two comments on Thanksgiving and contact the winners that following weekend.

Congratulations Wendy and Retta! You're the winners!
 
 
Please continue on to see what spectacular handmade project the fabulous Tina has created for you.
