Chalks n pastels

That’s the brief at Created by Hand today… and I used the watermark pad to stamp dragonflies straight onto the cardstock, before brushing on an orangey-gold chalk. It breaks up the all purple/silver nicely in RL!


It seems I am getting back into the creative swing of things, but it stupid just how much effort it took to complete three cards this afternoon. My focus was all over the place and of course, breaking off to sneeze loudly every so often didn’t help! Never mind – that’s one thing off my ‘To do’ in January list!

    rosie, very creative. And you are one up on me. I just can’t get going on anything with chalk. I have done pastel portraits before, but today the feel of chalk dust on my dry hands was just too, too much. I think your card is beautiful. Stamping and then dusting is a great idea.
