FTTC22 -- Playing with Chalks

Hello everyone~
It's July 1st!! I can't believe the half of the year is already gone...Time flies by so fast, doesn't it?
Before I got too busy with other things, I tried Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge 22 (FTTC22). The challenge is to use chalks (pastels). My chalks are in the back of the drawer for a long time until the time when I made this card for TSG Sneak Peek. After I made the card, I remember how fun playing the techniques with chalks were. I'm so glad I had another chance to play with my long lost friends today, lol.

遅くならない内に、FlourishesのTimeless Tuesday チャレンジ22(FTTC22)に挑戦しました。チャレンジは、チョーク(パステル)を使って作品を作るです。私のチョークは、引き出しの奥の方にずっと潜んでましたが、つい先日TSGのスニークピークで、このカードを作った時に、久しぶりに使いました。その時、チョークを使ったテクニックの楽しさを、改めて再発見。今回、また使うことができて嬉しいです。

I used "Poppin' Pastels technique" for my card. It's the same technique Silke showed us for the FTTC. I stamped Sweet Pea image with VersaMark Dazzle (champagne) and added colors with chalks & cotton balls. For the quote mat, I stamped the quote with brown ink first, then stamped the sweet pea image with the same way as I did the background. I distressed around the edges with the distressing tool & brown chalk ink.

今回のカードでは、Poppin' Pastelsというテクニックを使いました。FTTCのサンプルで、Silkeさんが使っていたテクニックです。スイートピーのイメージを、ヴァーサマークDazzle (シャンパン色)で捺し、その後、チョークとコットンで色を付けました。慣用句のパネルは、茶色のインクで言葉を捺した後、スイートピーのイメージを、バックグランドでした同じやり方で、色を付けました。縁は、ディストレッサーと茶色のチョークインクを使って、ディストレスしています。
