Lovely Medallion

When was the last time you used your Chalk Pastels? I know it's been a really looooonnnnng time for me! So, recently, I was playing with this new stamp, Medallion, and thought it would look really wonderful stamped in Versamark and partially highlighted with the chalks.....I think I was right, don't you?
The technique used here is an oldie, but a goodie....Poppin' Pastels.....and it's as fun as it ever was! Medallion is the number one selling new stamp in this year's new catalog, and I can see why. It's elegant and it's fun to use in so many ways.
Here it is paired up with the greeting from Kind & Caring Thoughts, which is a Hostess Level 3 which, as a demonstrator, I was able to pre-purchase before the release of the catalog in July. I fell in love with it because I just adore the font used for all the greeting stamps.
So, there you have it.....a quick, easy, and fun to make card! Thanks for's the deets:
Stamps: Medallion, Kind & Caring Thoughts
Inks: Versamark, Night of Navy
CS: Natural Ivory, Kraft, Brocade Blue
Misc: Photo Corner Punch (to create the "V" on the greeting tag), Brocade Blue Chalk Pastel, Kraft Corduroy Button, Linen Thread, Pop Up Glue Dot (to adhere the button), Cutter Kit (to distress the Brocade Blue CS layer)
Please note: All materials used to create this card are from the current SU! catalog.
