Life Happens .....

I recently found a set of Colorbox chalk inks and wanted to make a card using these as they dry with a matt finish and are quite pastel in colours.

I took a 5 x 5 inch square white base and die-cut a smaller matt in more white card. I then used a number of stamps (Dina Wakley) and a selection of the Chalk inks to stamp onto the white matt, mixing colours and overstamping. Just one image was stamped in Versafine black ink.

I used a black Posca pen to highlight parts of some of the numbers and edged the matt with mauve chalk ink.

The sentiment ( Hot Off The Press) was stamped in dark pink chalk ink on a piece of pink check paper in Versamark ink which was then heat embossed with fine clear embossing powder. This was matted onto some mauve card. The finished panel was applied to the cardblank and the sentiment added on foam pads to finish.

Liking the matt finish and have now used those long unused chalk inks too !
