Soft look with dry chalks

I feel like I have gotten a bit stuck in the same technique of coloring with promarkers and using patterned papers for my cards. So today I made a quite simple card, but with a new twist. I used a versamark inkpad to stamp up Elaine Cox's Katie from sweetpea stamps and rubbed it in different colored chalks to give the subtle look. I chose stronger papers in the same shades which I think enhances the softness of the image. It's a bit opposite of what I did last week. It doesn't always have to be advanced with lots of papers and layers. Sometimes all you need is a new technique to get great and different results.

What a beautiful, soft image. It's angelic! I love the colors you used and the pretty flower and butterfly as an accent. So pretty. Thanks so much for joining us at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge!
