Make It Monday # 169 CHALKS, STAMPS, AND IP!

Head over to Capture the Moment  for a new Make it Monday video.
Melissa first uses an impression plate (or cuttlebug folder),
then she daubs on different colors of chalk,
and finally she stamps over the chalk...lovely effect.
This is the first of a few that I chalked up.
I used a dot cuttlebug and added about three different colors of chalk, greens and blues .
Then I stamped over the chalked dots with the fern from Meadow Greens in Tropical Teal.
I added a strip of blueberry sky to the top and bottom of the fern and
embossed the sentiment with white filigree.
My butterfly is also embossed from Fancy Flourishes and die cut from Beautiful Butterflies. 
thanks for taking a look...great way to start out the week!!
