Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #31


This is my card for Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #31 hostessed by Shawne on Paper Craft Planet: http://www.papercraftplanet.com/group/cleardollarstampsllcweekendcolorchallenge/forum/topics/clear-dollar-stamps-weekend-15


Shawne's colors are:

Baja Breeze or Bashful Blue

Kiwi Kiss or Old Olive

Sahara Sand

Neutral: Ivory or White


I am excited to use this detailed new release ASTER-SEPTEMBER FLOWER OF THE MONTH from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS LLC: http://www.newcleardollarstamps.com/servlet/StoreFront


WHAT I DID: I stamped first in black, since I was coloring. I stamped the text at the top in VersaMark and used my chalks over the top with a cotton ball. I started with blue, and I accidentally put my cotton ball in green and I liked it so I did the brown too . That is how this colorful BG came to be HA HA. I topeed it with a piece of transparency film and sewed it on. That's it. I popped it up with dimensionals and I have a lovely notecard ready to be used.


Thank you for visiting me today!

Very pretty, Lisa. What a beautiful background you created with the chalk. Lucky for the accidental dip in the wrong color! How cool to sew a transparency on top. I bet it looks really pretty in person It is hard to see the transparency in the picture.
