Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC22)!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC22)!!! Have we got a lovely challenge for you this week!!!! It is the last Tuesday of the month, so it is time for another Guest Challenge Designer!!!! Today we welcome Linda Lucas(Lovely Linda) all the way from Australia! Welcome, Linda!!! Linda is challenging us to use our chalk!!! Now, there are so many techniques that you can do using chalk. Whether you want to color, sponge distress, create popping pastels, chalkboard technique, or choose another, the point is to dust off that chalk container and Chalk It!!! We would love to see what you create!

I am using the Flourishes Sweet Peas and Sweet Violets stamp sets. I am using some Basicgray sultry dp. I think this is one of my new favorite color combos. I am using the Flourishes classic white cardstock. I colored my sweet peas using the Flourishes Copic Color Collections in Hollyhock and Spring Greens. I used chalk to enhance the stripes on the background section that I stamped in versamark. I finished with ribbon, a tag, and sentiment from the Sweet Violets set.

This card is also for the OCC weekly challenge. This week is a sketch and it is fabulous!!!

Fiskars Border Punch TIP: I used the Fiskars effervescent border punch which I tucked in to give it more of the apron lace Fiskars styling which I love but do not own. However, I really love the way it looks so I thought I would share how you can get two looks for one purchase!!!
