Love & Sympathy . . . Chalked Irises

As you've probably guessed, I really enjoy the chalking technique!  It's such a simple way to color, just like I did as a little girl. This time I used the Love & Sympathy stamp set - a true 'must-have' set for those unexpected times when you want to send your condolences or encouragement . . . not to mention the fact that irises are my absolute favorite flowers!

I raised the Concord Crush panel up a bit with Dimensionals.  I also scored the focal panel 1/4" from each edge to give it a bit more interest. This time I used Q-tips to do my chalking - the finer tip worked better on this image than had I used a sponge dauber.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
