Here’s another card featuring chalk inks, this time in a palette of violet, turquoise, lilac and touches of sage green and even pink. I’m not very good at remembering which colours I’ve used and of course when it’s finished, there’s a whole load of new colours on the paper as I have mixed and blended them. These are all Versamagic, so maybe the colour chart will help – click on it for a larger view.
I just love the mix of colours in this range – the soft pastel colours have a sophisticated grey undertone to them so they’re not too sugary and the stronger colours are great for overstamping direct to paper chalk backgrounds.
In the product launch video, I did make a note of the colours I used to make the owl card – Sage, Sugarcane, Aquatic Splash, Sea Breeze for the background and I stamped the owls with Eggplant and the flowers with Red Brick.
Heres the finished card I made with that piece.
I added a touch more Red Brick around the edges using a piece of Cut’n'Dry foam to flick it in from the edge. The flower is made with Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine paper – it holds a scrunched shape really well and goes soft and leathery when scrunched and spritzed. Interesting stuff that I’ve yet to fully explore … we’re almost out of stock now, but I have more on order.
