Friday Challenge 16!

Good Morning Scrappers!  

I hope you are enjoying the weather where you are, here in south western Ontario, summer is on its way!  It's June and time to bring you a Friday Quick Quotes Challenge from Karan. 

I love the Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalk Inks and I am always looking for another way to use them.  I wanted to challenge you to create a background using these inks.  You can also incorporate stamps and masks to add some detail.  Here is what I came up with.

First, I thought I would grab the papers I wanted to work with, I then matched PowderPuff Inks to coordinate with the papers.

Papers are from the Je T'aime line and the inks I used are: Biscotti, LemonadeTahitiBaja BluePurple Passion and Very Berry.  Not shown in this photo is Midnight Confessions, it was added later.

I began my prepping my canvas with Lemonade and Biscotti:

I then added Tahiti, Baja Blue, and Purple Passion:
I used a 6x6 reversed chicken wire crafters template along with Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalk Ink, added some texture paste and then heat set to dry.

Then with a blending tool, I added Midnight Confessions to the texture paste areas of the canvas:
I had some bubble wrap and added some Baja Blue to it and stamped on the canvas. I love how this turned out!  I made sure the chalk inks were completely dry before I went onto creating my final project.

Here are some detail shots:
