The Time of Mellow Fruitfulness – day 2

Today we have a card or two from Kim X


I think that this theme is perfect for Kim with her amazing backgrounds. Kim has made the background with a Dutch Doobadoo Mask Art Stencil this one is Spiders Web. Kim has used it with Decorating Chalks they are a great way to create soft backgrounds. Kim has coloured through the stencil so that the web is left pale. Then Kim has stamped and embossed Jane’s Clear Magic Wheat stamp over the top to give a strong image.


Kim has layered on to another piece of Chalked Mixed Media Card. This time before chalking Kim has covered the card with a Watermark Pad which holds the chalk and makes them stand out.

Kim as usual has got carried away so pop over to her blog to see what else she has been up too this week with this theme.

Thanks for visiting see you soon!




To create a darker piece of background for the main body of the card I first tapped a clean Versamark inkpad over a sheet of Mixed Media card stock and then blended the same colours of Decorating Chalks over it. The ink makes the chalks appear darker and is a great way to create co-ordinating paper to match your chalked images.
