We have a lovely challenge for you this week! It is the last Tuesday of the month, so it is time for another Guest Challenge Designer! Today we welcome Linda Lucas(Lovely Linda) all the way from Australia! Welcome, Linda!!! Linda is challenging us to use our chalk!!! There are so many techniques that you can do using chalk. Whether you want to color, sponge distress, create popping pastels, chalkboard technique, or another technique of choice, the point is to dust off that chalk container and Chalk It!!! We would love to see what you create!
Let's go see what the blog design team created for you this week using chalks!
Next this week is, Silke Ledlow . Silke is using the Summer on the Patio and Sweet Violets stamp sets. Silke is also using some Basicgray euphoria dp. Beautiful colors and design, Silke. Silke stamped the floral image using versamark then colored each flower and leaf with chalk as well as the watering can. She finished her card with some deep rose satin ribbon and a sentiment from the Sweet Violets set! I love the colors and the popping pastel technique with this image. Gorgeous card, Silke!!!
Next, is Betty Wright. I am using the Sweet Peas and Sweet Violets stamp sets. I am using some Basicgray sultry dp. I think this is one of my new favorite color combos. I am using the Flourishes classic white cardstock. I colored my sweet peas using the Flourishes Copic Color Collections in Hollyhock and Spring Greens. I used chalk to enhance the stripes on the background section that I stamped in versamark. I finished with ribbon, a tag, and sentiment from the Sweet Violets set.
Cindy Haffner is next. Cindy is using the Spring Ephemerals stamp set. Love these colors! To create some texture Cindy is using the Spellbinders flower impressabilities. She created a cording frame around the edge of the card. Love this look. Cindy framed the silhouette flower with the Spellbinder's label four shape. She used chalk to create shading and dimension around the framed image. She finished the look with some dainty butterfly brads. Beautifully done, Cindy!!!
Next up this week is Connie McCotter. On behalf of the Flourishes and the blog design team we would like to let Connie know just have much we have enjoyed her guest designing with us this month. Thank you so much, Connie!!! Connie is using the Patriotism on Parade set. I just love the fireworks sky background Connie created using one of the images in this set. The technique is called background burst. The vibrancy of the colors is beautiful. It really shows the detail of the image in this set. Wonderful patriotic card, Connie!!! Please check out the Designing for a Cause Challenge to see how you can help with the Wounded Warrior Project and Cards for Heroes.
Last this week is, Dee Jackson. Dee is using the newly released Life, Love and Lemons set. Dee used chalks to enhanced the embossed image of her embossing folder background. She colored the lemons image using Flourishes Copic Color Collections. She is using the Daffodil and some of the Spring Greens and Fields color collections. Dee also enhanced her ribbon treatment with shades of the daffodil copic collections markers. Lovely card, Dee!
