The best thing about (trying to) organizing the Command Center is finding products I forgot I had or in this case, haven't used in a long, long time. Chalk pencils!
I stamped the floral images on Oatmeal color cardstock. I love this color because it's not quite kraft but kraft-lite. lol
Check out my process video here:
And here are some close ups:
The added rectangle border, sequins & pearls really give this card an extra uummph.
This card encouraged me to move those chalk pencils from the back of the stock closet to the tools container on my desk. I hope to use these more and more!
I'm entering this card on the Heart 2 Heart challenge blog. There current challenge is a technique challenge - border. This is a CTMH products challenge blog and this stamp set is from the Stamp of the Month collection for December, 2020.
I’m also entering it in the Always Fun Challenges blog for challenge #201. The challenge theme is Anything Goes.
And the Country View Challenges Blog for their Spring challenge.
