EONAC: Coloring with Chalks





Here we are at Monday again, and the weekend is a distant memory. I did have some time to play in my stamp room yesterday, but Justin wanted to create with me and I spent most of my time helping him make his cards (he CASEd two of mine from last week!). I also had a killer headache most of the day and that cramped my mojo a little, too.

These little notes are all I managed to make this weekend - using the SU! hostess set, Of The Earth. I colored the images using the Chalkboard Technique, which satisfies the EONAC challenge to use a forgotten coloring too. My chalks were buried in the back of a drawer and it was fun to use them again with this cool technique! The papers are all from the scrap pile, with the exception of the Kraft card bases on the larger cards. The embossing is done with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. The most used folder in my collection, how about yours?

We are drying out after a horrifically rainy weekend. So many of our friends have flooded basements, but somehow we managed to avoid that. We did move most of our things up from the basement just in case, though. I hope you are all doing well and are spared from any wicked weather. Bring on the sunshine! Thanks for looking!

These are terrific! I so miss this technique (esp. on black). And to use kraft as your base? Brill! Thanks for always playing along Melissa...hope you and the kidlets are keeping well!

Oh, I totally love all of these. I just got out my chalks last night to make another card for this challenge - I really do like working with them, I just forget about them. Thanks for joining us.
