Ally Pally (4) Playing with chalks
Hello Again! This is my fourth card using something bought from Ally Pally last Saturday.
Yesterday I had a friend round to do some crafting. One of the things we decided to do was using large stamps to make backgrounds using chalks. It's a technique neither of us has done for a long time now.
We used our Versamark ink pads, which leaves a watermark on the card then coloured with chalks, using cotton wool pads.
Today I made a few cards using some of the backgrounds. The ribbon was from my stash and yeah! I've used up a few more of those old peel offs.
I used my new Memory Box (No.98838) "Happy Birthday" die. I think it's going to be one that I use quite often as it makes a quick card which will help to fill up my charity box each month. The possibilities for using different backgrounds and embellishments, with this die, is almost endless.
