Make it Monday #168

         Make It Monday #168: Combining Chalk and Stamps with Impression Plates

Well, this turned out to be a very interesting challenge for me.  I only have one impression plate and that is the In Bloom.  I embossed that on watercolor paper and also embossed (at the same time) a spellbinder rectangle die, so that I could put in a sentiment.  I do not have chalks, so I used my Gelatos and water to color over that.  Here is where it gets interesting.  Using Distressed inks, I stamped the wreath from A Wreath For All Seasons stamp set.  Over the wreaths, I stamped Dahias from the Delightful Dahlia Additions set, to make this unusual flower.  Gingham washi tape on the bottom to lighten up the card.  I am not sure it I like the results, but see what you think.  Here it is.

Just a quick post today!  Hope you day is good, and thanks for stopping.
