Chalk ink and a fun background

So wanted to enter some fun challenges. I made a few of the same cards.


Here is the background in the works. Either can work for a different look. I used some turquoise chalk ink, black soot, and a grey dye ink. I put a half inch grid on the paper in light pencil. And stamped on the x. I used the star from lawn fawn joy to the woods. Makes a fun geometric pattern.

I used the Cow from Simon Says Stamp with the chalk ink on black paper. I used the same ink to color some paper to match. I ended up offsetting the circles to give a retro feeling to the card. It is brighter in person but has a fun chalk look which is very in. More fun to use a color then just white.

My favorite part is really the background it is truly the star of this card. What shapes do you see?




This is for the Lawnscaping – background with a stamp and Use Your Stuff – geometric challenge.
