I've been using the fabulous CHALK IT UP and CHALKBOARD WISDOM plates to create my vintage card this week.
The background has been coloured with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and flicked with water to add bleached out blotches to the background.
I stamped the frame from the CHALK IT UP plate using Black Archival Ink and I then added random stamping to the frame using the background stamp from the EPHEMERA BACKGROUNDS stamp plate using Black and Sepia Archival Inks. I then added the wonderful bird from the BIRDS OF A FEATHER plate.
The two birds at the top of the frames is also from the CHALK IT UP plate and is a lovely filler to coordinate with any Artistic Outpost stamp plates. Natural twine and a bird cage charm have been added for further interest.
A second frame has been stamped alongside the first, stamping the fabulous sentiment from the CHALKBOARD WISDOM plate, again background stamping has also been added.
A dimensional flower has been added, cut from Calico, adding a touch of background stamping to the petals for further interest along with a medallion to the centre.
The dots, from the CHALKBOARD WISDOM plate are yet another great filler and I love them here stamped at the bottom of each frame. Ornate brass corners have been added for further dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Such cool watery splotches in your background, and the pair of frames look brilliant. Great composition and another beauty of a card, Tracy!

Stunning card! Shows that the chalkbaord stamps can be used on more than just black and still look fabulous.
