Flamingo with Chalk Technique with Technique Junkies

Hello Everyone.
Last day of March, already!  Wow.  The months are just flying by!  Getting ready to work on my huge landscaping project.  Just waiting for the ground to completely thaw and I can start digging.  But, in the meantime......
I have another fun project with Technique Junkies' stamps from the March Release group and a Chalk technique.

Materials List:
Stamps: Flamingo and Growing Wild both from Technique Junkies
Ink: Coffee Archival, Saddle Brown Stazon
CS:Cream, textured cream, yellow, brown, blue
Glimmer Mist Spray
Brown and Cream Sheer Ribbon

Make It:

  • Make a card from blue CS
  • On cream textured CS stamp the Growing Wild stamp with Saddle brown ink
  • Using the Fantasy Chalk Technique color the background behind the stamp
  • Note: You may have this newsletter in your stash, if not here is how to do the background: Stamp with Stazon ink.  Rub three or four different colors of chalk across the textured stamped CS. Blend the chalk with a tissue or rag.
  • I also added a few spritzes of Glimmer mist to give it sparkle
  • Layer the stamped background with brown CS and add to card

  • Tie the two ribbons around the card
  • Stamp Flamingo on cream CS with Coffee ink and add some of the glimmer spray
  • Layer with brown and yellow CS and add to card

Love this cute Flamingo stamp!  Just a nice touch of humor for an all occasion card.  Stay tuned...tomorrow is the Technique Junkies April New Release blog hop!!
See you then!!  Love ya


  1. Hi Karen, I have a question. To get the double bow, did you use two different widths of ribbon together or did you tie one ribbon and then add the second ribbon and tie the bow. The result is lovely and adds such a nice depth to a charming card.

    1. Hi Annette! I held the two together and tried to keep the narrower ribbon on top. Thank you!

  2. Beautiful card. Love all the details. TFS
