Setting the mood with chalk

For my final September guest designer post on the Chalk n Stock blog I decided to focus on one of these wonderful images I just got from Dilly Beans.  I love that you can add chalk to any stamped creation to create a mood for your project.  For my project I started out coloring this wonderful digital image using my Copic markers.  I then created the fun background using washi tape that I layered around the edges of my card base.  I then went back and chalked the background behind the image to match the washi tape.  I LOVE how it turned out...such a warm feeling to the card from just a few swipes of the chalk in a few fall colors.

I hope you'll pull out your chalks and add some great background and set the mood for your next stamping project!

Happy crafting....Lynda

I'm submitting this card to the Dilly Beans Autumn colors challenge.

Supplies:  Chalk:  Close to My Heart; Digital image:  Dilly Beans, Markers:  Copics, and Washi tape: My Minds Eye.
