Chalk It Up!

Hello to all of you! When I saw the current challenge chosen by the Shelly at Frilly and Funkie "Chalk It Up," well I had to get busy with my Artistic Outpost's Chalk It Up and Christmas Chalk stamps!
I painted a black tag with DecoArt Chalkboard paint in black and while still wet grated on a little white chalk and using brushed it with a mop paint brush. Gave this a spray with clear sealer. A few chalk lines were scribbled in as well.
The frame was stamped with VersaMark and embossed with white. The snow flakes, deer and sentiment were stamped in VersaMark and sprinkled with a mix of grated white chalk and Perfect Pearls Confetti White.  To finish I added some of those brads from years back and layered up with paper. Easy enough for those many cards/tags we need to send at Christmas!

Thank you for visiting today and there are only a couple of days remaining at AO's "Show Us Your AO Art" challenge, but October is just around the corner and a hole new challenge will begin!

Fabulous tag Terry, the red backing really makes the chalkboard 'pop'. I like the white embossing with the chalk effect too.

I thought of these stamps as soon as I saw the F&F challenge! Fabulous chalky tag - your technique is perfect for genuine chalkiness - and I love those little gems too.
