Fun with chalk inks!

I have recently been inspired to buy chalk inks by all the posts people have had showing off their soft matte finish.  So I went to a store armed with a coupon and ready to buy!  I couldn't seem to find any large ink pads but found dew drops by Tsukineko:
I am loving this set!  It's called Clowning Around and it has Thatched Straw, Midnight Black, Cloud White and Red Magic.  These colours are scrumptious and I am definitely going to get another set. To make the card below, I used my Papertrey Ink Giga Guidelines stamp set with these inks.  I ran my SU Kraft cardstock through my cuttlebug with the Giga Guidelines Impression Plate for some texture.  I used the Thatched Straw yellow ink and it was wonderfully juicy.  Added a scrap strip of Gina K pure luxury Smoky Slate card stock and a jewel and voil√†!

Paper: SU kraft, Staples white, Gina K smoky slate
Stamp: PTI Giga Guidelines
Ink: Thatched Straw Tsukineko chalk ink
Tools: Cuttlebug, PTI Giga Guidelines Impression Plate, Marvy square punch, Fiskars paper cutter, pop dots
Embellishments: amber jewel
