Colorless Calendula!


It's Chris, sharing a card today featuring the new July stamp, Calendula!  Calendula is such an amazing background stamp!  I had colored it with Copic Markers for the Release hop, (if you missed it, you can see if fully colored here).

But today, I chose to use a variation of the chalkboard technique along with a pop of color.

I stamped the Calendula stamp with white pigment ink and heat embossed using a glittery white embossing powder.  I added some faint coloring to the highlight areas with a white Chameleon Colortone pencil.

Calendula, Things I Want to Do

The card was assembled on a bright yellow card base.  I added a greeting on a matching piece of deckled trimmed cardstock.  The sentiment is from the set Things I Want To Do.  I added a doodled border with a Copic Multiliner pen.

Thanks for stopping by today!

It worked perfectly! Your highlights on the petals really makes them pop.
