Chalk-colored flowers

Yes, chalk. I'm noooo good with chalk, but I tried. How the heck are you supposed to use it to color? Things got messy around the ends of the stamp so I decided to outline it with Cloud Blue Prismacolor marker. I loved this sketch from Penny Black! It was really fun to work with.

This card is for a couple of challenges:
  1. Penny Black - for Week #55 Sketch - I used a PB stamp from the "Flower Gallery" acrylic set
  2. Flourishes - for FTTC #22 Use Chalk - I colored the flowers with chalk; this really was challenging!
Card Details
Paper: Kaboodle Doodles Old Kit, Bazzill
Stamp: PB Flower Gallery set, Fiskars sentiment
Tools: Cuttlebug, embossing folder, chalk

This is gorgeous!
your chalk coloring looks great, I think you can just use a white eraser to take the smudges off! but the blue outline around the flower really makes it pop!
Blessings, Maria
