First time for everything!

Lythan commented yesterday that I seem to be on a roll and I do!! I think the reason for it is that my neck is now on the mend and I hadn't realised just how sore I had been for the past 6 months apart from the last couple of weeks when it was making me scream - long may the roll continue.
Believe it or not, although I've been making cards for 2 or 3 years now, I've never actually used chalks. But I managed to pick some up for an ok price at the Edinburgh stamp show recently, so thought I'd try them out last night on the 21st card I was making for L.

I used BG Phoebe papers, QK Sunshine alphabet (which I love to bits). The copper flower is made from sculpey using a push mould and dusted with copper Pearlex powder. I used dark brown chalk around the outside of the numbers and background paper.

Toodles xoxo
