TAC Chalk Hop

I'm not sure I can remember the last time I had my chalks out!  But today's blog hop over at Savvy Projects is to make a card using your Angel Company stamps and chalks.  Check out all the inspiration!

For my card I stamped my flower and leaf image in VersaMark and then rubbed the chalk over them with a q-tip.... the old "Poppin' Pastels" technique.  I then stamped in some swirls and speckles to fill in my background.  The Friend stamp is from the Singing Praises set, which is current.  All of the other stamps are retired, I think, sorry!


Here's another Angel Company card that I made the other day, following this week's sketch challenge... mostly. :-)  It uses the hostess set "Thanking God" and the set "Showers of Blessing".

Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings!

Two great cards...when I've tried the chalk rub, my cards looked so empty...your swirls and dots fills in the blanks perfectly!
