Irreplaceable Mixed Media

The "Irreplaceable Friend" stamp set from my Rainbow Bridge stamp series  works really well for mixed media style cards.  I used to do a lot of mixed media many moons ago but this is my first try in a very long do you think it turned out?

I started out with a piece of Basic Grey cardstock from my scrap box and stamped the background with the paws from "Furever in our Hearts" and an old newsprint stamp.
Then I added some watered down chalk paint. (plain old white chalk paint I had in the garage) with a cosmetic sponge.

While I was waiting for the chalk paint to dry I stamped several of the words from the "Irreplaceable Friend" sentiments onto both vanilla card stock and an old book page (old book pages are perfect for mixed media!).  I cut out each word without trying to keep my cut lines straight then used a black marker and marked around the edges of each word.

The last image I stamped was the border collie dog, then I glued down each of the words.  Everything is completely flat on this card. I do like dimension on mixed media cards but I felt this one just needed to be flat. My last step was to sponge on more distress ink in the areas that needed it.
