chalk

Hello,
Thank you so much for your visit. The other day when i colored this little sitting Tilda for my egg container, i first stamped the image off some Kraft card stock to see if the size would work for the container. Than later in the evening while i was cleaning up my craft table i started to scribble the image in with black and white chalk pens. It took no longer than 10 minutes. I was really surprised by the out come and emailed a quick picture to a couple of friends to see if they thought it was worth to make a card with it.

Since there was a lot of scribbles around the image i had to cut that off with the smallest possible oval Nestabilite, but i think it still works. Everything on this card was already previously cut for other cards and ended up not being used and tossed in a clear storage bin to use for later.

All i had to do was add some flowers, sew and sponge the card stock/design paper.

Here are the supplies i used:
Stamp: Pie Tilda, Make a wish sentiment, new york post stamp
Magnolia Design Paper: flowers and blue quilt
Dies: So lovely, Spellbinder banner, Tag, Spellbinder oval, Go Create, Wood embellishments are PrimaMarketing. i know Sir Stampalot has the kit i used.. i just could find the correct direct link. This is how it looked sort of.

Claudia, I think this is just elegant in the black 'n white. I just used those wooden birds this last week and colored them black. The flowers and add a lot of color and depth to your project.

Tilda looks difficult to color like this and then I read what you did, wow, amazing! I love how she turned out the shades of chalk are beautiful.
