One design, two cards

These two cards were both done using the Organic Grace set which is a level 1 hostess set. I wanted to try out some different background ideas. The top card was done by stamping the cow parsley image in Versamark and heat embossing with clear powder. I then chalked over the image in night of navy chalk to create the soft background. This didn't show up to well on the camera so I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped over the images in black stazon to highlight them. The second card was started in the same way but the background was created using the brayer and bashful blue ink, which seems to have gone very dark. Both card were finished off with rub-ons from the Cherished Memories collection. Although it didn't turn out exactly as I planned I prefer the chalked card.
