A Perfect Summer Day - Chalked~
It's Monday morning and that means CHF's DT Challenge Chicks Monday; today the challenge is using chalks. For the image itself, A Perfect Summer Day by TK for CHF, is inked it onto a larger piece of card stock with Versafine Vintage Sepia onto Neenah Solar White and then trimmed it to size after coloring it in. I chalked this card using I Kan' Dee Chalks by Pebbles, using the Basic Brights and Earthtone sets. Instead of using the cotton ball/alligator clip applicator included in the set, I prefer to use flat paint brushes in assorted sizes to apply the chalks. After chalking the image, I sealed it with a matte sealer before trimming, matting and adhering to the simply stamped card base. I wanted the image to shine and didn't want a busy background to detract from the image.
Chalking these intricate images is so fast and really easy, I was very surprised at easily the image came together. I Kan' Dee chalks are the Product Spotlight, which also means they are on sale, over at CHF, check them out here:
