Only a Dreamer...

Today is a day for day dreams. I have some and I hope that they come true. I created this card with a cute stamps from Stamp N Plus Scrap N.

She can be found in the Fantasy section or just click here for a fast link to her.

I stamped her with black ink and then colored her in with chalk. What you say, that doesn't' look like chalk. Well it is chalk mixed with paint to create a look of gloss. All I had to do was take a little bit of the colored that I wanted, put it onto a acrylic block and mix with white glossy paint. and wallah I was ready to color my image. I like to use an acrylic block for my paint pallet as it just wipes clean with a baby wipe.

Stamp N Plus Scrap N has the best chalks that I have ever worked with. LuAnn has come up with a powdered chalk called Chalk-Ah-Lot. There are so many ways to use these chalks with paint, glue, mixed with bubbles and more. They are so easy to use that you will never go back to the cake ones that you have to scratch at. There is a huge variety of colors that include fluorescent and metallic.

Now back to what I did with the rest of the card. I layered her on card stock with brads and added a flower and some beads. I like this clean and simple look.

Yes Only a Dreamer... Can Make Dreams Come True....

Happy Stamping............Tammy
