Life is Good


Created for the Sunday postcard Challenge. The background uses chalk inks in Tea Leaves and Eggplant. This was then stamped with a crackle in Spanish Olive and a script in Eggplant. Next the black numbers stamp was added, a torn book page, and the collage image. Finally, some ink splotches also in black and the text.

Amazing color combination - this was the exact color of the sky over the sea this evening, in between snow squalls and sun breaks. Gorgeous card!

Another beautiful piece of art!
Can you tell me if you don't mind, what the chalk inks are about, I love using chalk pastels, but have never seen inks, I just have to have some :)
I am just loving your work, what an inspiration on a Monday morning.
