Stampin' Chalk marker on pink technique

This week's challenge at Less is More is to use Three Colours or Three Shades of One Colour on a card, which gave me the perfect opportunity to try out an idea that's been in my head for a while: I wanted to use my Stampin' Chalk marker on some bright card stock. Come and see my pink, white and black card:


I used the flowers from Stampin' Up's So Very Grateful stamp set, stamping them in versamark directly onto the front of the gorgeous Melon Mambo card base and heat embossing them using white embossing powder.


The leaves were coloured with a Melon Mambo marker and the flowers with the Chalk Marker, giving them this delicate, lacy look.


To finish the card, I stamped a bold sentiment from Regarding Dahlias and curved the bottom corners of the card with a corner rounder.

When my daughter was at her boyfriend's house recently, his three year old sister sidled up and asked her if she'd like to see her new dress. The pretty pink dress was duly shown, followed by the rest of the little girl's entire wardrobe. My daughter said she was astonished by two things: first, that every one of the garments was pink, and second, that the little girl was an impressive clothes folder upper! "I was shamed by a three year old!" she said.

See you tomorrow,
