Chalkboard and pastels


I was playing with my AquaTints and made a background from one of the papers by die cutting it with a Winnie & Walter die and sticking it down on top of some plain white cardstock. I think the Pastel AquaTints are so soft and pretty and the background turned out really good. I stamped a speech bubble on vellum and since it was a large image and I didn't ink it up very well it ended up looking a bit chalk board-looking. I Did use my misti for this but chose not to double stamp it because it looked cool when you could see through spots of it. I flipped it over and stamped a greeting on it and attached it to the card. I like the contrast with the black on top of the pastels.

I hope you liked my card! See you soon again.

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
