Timeless Tuesday...Wednesday

Well one thing you can count on is my always doing the Timeless Tuesday for Flourishes on Wednesday. What a loser...yep I know it but I just can't seem to get it done on Tuesday. Probably because I'm recouping from a roarous weekend of wining and dining and dancing and ....who am I kidding here? Well this week the challenge was to use chalk and I took it literally. I inked up my stamp with Versa's watermark ink and then tried to find the shadow of ink on the paper, dang it sucks getting old. I used Flourishes Spring * Ephemerals bleeding heart. That's * a hard word to say so I'm glad I just had to type it for you. Once I found the shadow I used a kind of fuchia color for the flowers and just the green for leaves, but since I wanted some definition I also used my colored pencils to kind of outline everything. Used
BG Sultry for the pink background paper and 2 of my Nesties for the shapes. Add a
phrase from DiNami and a bit of ribbon ( Flourishes beautiful brown chiffon ) and a few blingers. Done! Happy hump day stampers and I'll be back for another challenge on Friday.

Pat - don't feel bad...I'm always late on challenges too (at least the ones I'm not involved in - LOL) much going on!!! But I'm glad you played along today!!!

This is a gorgeous take in the chalk challenge!!! Believe it or not I first wanted to use this particular image too, but then I received happy mail and changed my mind - LOL!!! I do love how your card and chalk image turned out!!!

Always a treat to see your cards!!! Hugs ~S~

Beautiful! Chalking gives such a soft pretty look to an image, doesn't it? I always get mine done late too...sometimes even the day before the next week's challenge starts!!

It's only that rare occasion when I get a challenge done on the day it's posted as well, but there are usually no strict guidelines for that, so I think we're both safe from the challenge police! LOL Your card is lovely and well worth waiting the extra day for! The chalking image is so pretty and you really did a great job with it! TFS!
