Salute to Friendships

     The newest monthly Outlawz Progressive Freebie challenge started a few days ago and I'm getting my card in early this month!  The freebie image came from Bugaboo Stamps and I love their images which focus on the sentiment.  They are always so lovely.


     This time all my coloring is done with chalks, applied with a cotton swab.  I used two shades of blue for the sky, one shade of each of the other colors (pink, green, and yellow.)  After the coloring, I cut it with a die from Spellbinders and backed that with burnt umber dp - a left over scrap just the right size.

     I mounted that onto ombre CS and used that as the card front.  I added some sparkly, metallic twine and left it very CAS.

     Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

A very elegant card. Your colouring with chalks is lovely and soft in these colours and seems to suit the sentiment perfectly. Thanks for joining Time Out

Love your colouring of the chalks and that twine with the tassle hanging just finishes the card perfectly. Hugs Mrs A.

Using chalk is a very creative idea. Much different texture than a marker. Thank you so much for joining us at Crafty Gals Corner Challenges. Jana DT~CGCC
