Gingersnap Creations - Versamark Challenge

This is my card for the Spicy Supply Challenge at Gingersnap Creations using Versamark. I used it in 2 ways. First, I stamped leaves and then used various colors of chalks over the stamped images to add color. This is fun and very forgiving - if you chalk over the edges of your stamped image, you can erase the chalk. The second use of Versamark is in the black paper where I stamped a flourish in Versamark and brushed Perfect Pearls over it - this gives it a cool, shimmery effect. Inspired to pull out your Versamark and create a project for this challenge? You've got plenty of time; it doesn't close until Nov.7. Stamp credits: leaves - Artistic Outpost, flourish - Hero Arts, text - Purple Onion Designs

So elegant and love the touch of adding the leaves. Lynne x (yes it was a Crafty Individuals scroll I used on the mannequin jewellery stand, well spotted my friend LOL)

This is so beautiful! I must admit that I haven't tried most versamark techniques, but I've got all the ingredients - you have inspired me to get them out and play! :)
