Chalk Inks

I haven't played with my chalk inks in quite a while and I was happy to see that they are holding up quite well even though I got them years ago. 
This card was very easy to make. I embossed the floral background stamp on white card stock using white pigment ink and white embossing powder. I applied the color to the flowers by rubbing a small piece of felt on the chalk ink pads and then applying the ink to the embossed image. I did add a little color with a yellow marker to the yellow flowers and the center of the pink ones. Stamped the sentiment, punched it out in a tag shape, a little ribbon and a few pearls are the finishing touches.
If you haven't used chalk inks before they have a "chalky" dull image after they dry but you can rub a dry soft cloth over them and it brings some shine to the finish.

I am looking forward to seeing my stamp club friends today. This will be the first meeting I have been able to attend this year and I have missed seeing everyone.

Hope you have a great day and thanks for sharing a  little time with me.
