C is for Chalks

Hi! I am showing another card today for my alphabet series. Today the letter is C and I am using chalks. I have been moving and most of my craft supplies are at the new house. So making this card was a huge challenge! I found a background in my stash where I had used the floating chalks technique. I scraped various colors of chalk on top of a pan of water and dipped my card stock into it. I really like the fun background that it made. I also had this cute House Mouse already colored and die cut so I matted it onto a piece of black card stock. I used a letter stencil for the word love and a strip of patterned paper to add some interest. Talk about having to use my brain! I really had to think a lot about this card!

You really thought creatively to come up with chaulk. Great one. I really like how your background turned out!

Your background looks terrific, and the mouse is just too cute, I can't even imagine trying to get my stuff moved and still be able to make a card, you did great!

This is such a cute card! The background is really cool. Perfect for a simple image over the top. Great job meeting your own blog challenge (C - chalk) as well as other challenges, and with limited supplies.
