FANTASY CHALK COCONUT

Ahhh Sunday! The weekend went too fast. I had a great Saturday. I spent the day in my office stamping with my stamping buddy. Many times, as I stamp she comes in and wants to stamp with me... well, not just stamp with me...but make the SAME EXACT card that I do. I have shared her project here. After church today, I get to stamp with my youngest. Her patience level is much less, so I anticipate it will only last 30 minutes max.

Todays card uses the Fantasy Chalk technique from Technique Junkies. This is one of my FAVORITE techniques...for two reasons... 
1. I rarely use my stamping chalks, so this helps me pull them out
2. I love how the cards come out when I am done with them. So different!

Here is a close up of the cards focal image...

And here is my finished product with some more details...

I used Paper Temptress's GORGEOUS paper. I used the Gray Leather cardstock that looks and feels exactly like leather! I put it through the Big Shot and added the same colors of chalks. I also used Paper Temptress's Metallic Gold Leaf Cord...this is soooooo pretty! I literally cut it at 2 inches and 1 inch to save it, so I will be able to use it on MORE projects! 

The stamp I chose was Fruit Cup and Birthday Wishes from Firecracker Designs By Pamela - I love the versatility of this set! As I stamped and colored this, all I could think of was "I am Coo-Coo for Coconuts!" A small take on the Cocopuffs commercials from my childhood. lol
