More Chalk Pop!

 I have a few more happy cards for you today using The Rubber Cafe's April Creative Cafe' Kit - Petticoat Fashion and the Chalk Pop Technique!
I used the flowers from the Hello, World stamp set.  They look sort of like Morning Glories to me...and I have fond memories of them winding their way up the iron railings as I headed of to school spring mornings as a child.  I chose chalks in the blue tones for these flowers.  I inked the solid image with Versamark ink and then patted the light blue chalk onto the image.  Next, I  stamped the more detailed stamp with Versamark over the chalked image and patted the darker blue chalk on top.   As a final step I inked the flower center with Versamark and then add the orange chalk.  

The leaves were done in a similar way with light and dark green chalks.  Once the images were colored, I fussy cut them.

I used some of the patterned paper from the included paper pack and did a fun paper embroidery edge around it. 

HINT:  Use the pattern of the paper to pierce your embroidery holes.  I love the symmetrical look you get!  I used 2 strands of white embroidery floss.

Flowers are then popped onto the card, some flat and others on foam tape as desired.

I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black ink. 
This card was done in a similar fashion using scraps of the paper from the kit.
