Speedy the Fox and Friends Challenge-Use Chalk

The Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 107 this week is to Use Chalk. I have not done much work using chalk but was very happy with the results using Glossy White Cardstock and applying chalk directly to the stamped image using a cotton swab. The chalk gave a pretty pastel look to the flowers ( a new stamp from Mark's Finest Papers  Oopsy Daisy Stamp Set) and does not smear or flake off from this type of paper.  I stamped the image again onto glossy paper using Memento black ink and cut out the image with an oval die.  I colored the stems using Copics. I then placed this image with a ribbon on double mats of a scallop oval and a classic oval.  I then fussy cut the chalked flowers out and applied this on top of the second image in the oval. Using a white card base, a pink mat and an embossed mat of green, I assembled the card. I stamped the sentiment with the same black ink and finished with a double loop bow.
