Sentimental Sundays - Switch it up

Hello and happy Sunday to you!

The challenge at Sentimental Sundays this time is to use a style or technique that is new to you. Basically - do something you haven't done before.

Well. I thought about what would be totally new for me and decided to try and do SEVERAL. See if you can guess:

OK, I know, it looks pretty much like every other one of my cards BUT
1) I used digital papers (got them from Bearly Mine Designs, yummy colours and lovely patterns)
2) I printed them and the image on kraft card
3) No colouring (gasp), just very light and quick dusting with chalks on image

I cut the flowers from Graphic 45 papers with Marianne's Creatables dies and the sentiment comes from the same papers. Did a lot of inking with Memento inks, distressed the papers and smothered in Stickles. The swirls on the sides were dotted freehand with Liquid Pearls, also my first time to do that.

IMAGE: TLC Stamps freebie
Coloring Medium: chalks
Inks: MementoPaper: Bearly Mine Designs, Graphic 45kraft card
Accessories: ribbon, lace from Wild Orchid Crafts, Marianne's Creatables dies, Liquid Pearls, Stickles, Papermania gems and brads
Tools: ATG adhesive gun, Big Shot,  glue gel, Purple Cow guillotine,Martha Stewart scoring board, Martha Stewart leaf punch, Tim Holtz distressing tool.
