DTC# 62 --- Coloring with chalk

Happy tuesday everyone!! I am so sorry for the lack of posts, I try to get at least a couple of cards done a week but somehow it just doesn't seem to happen at the moment
.
So here we are again, tuesday, and that means another digital tuesday challenge. Amy is our hostess and she challenged us to color with chalk. It's been quite some time since I last used them and I was actually going to sell them a while ago, but then decided to keep them in a box of rarely used stamping stuff.


My image is from MelJen's designs, who is also our sponsor this week. The owner gave the Design Team a couple of images to use, but I decided to use one that I had purchsed from them a little while ago. I just love this little mouse reading in the shade under a mushroom. So cute!

I printed it out on Couture detail copic blending paper which I purchased from I heart stamps. This paper does not only work great with copics it worked wonderful with the chalks too, as well as Prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol.
My image was colored using Stampin Up chalk. I used a versamarker here and there to make the color pop a little.

Colored papers are all from stampin up. I embellished with a small punched out flower and sticky pearl, ribbon, a diecut flourish and some stickles glitter. Sentiment is from stampin up.

Our sponsor MelJen's is giving away 4 of their adorable digis to one lucky winner. If you'd like to play along for a chance at winning, all you have to do is make a card (or other project) using a digital image and color with chalk. Then use mr linky at the digital tuesday challenge blog to link your card. Easy, right!

My card also fits a few other challenges:
That's it for today. Hope you're having a GREAT day! And don't forget to dig out those chalks!!
