Bloggers Challenge Week 19-Embellishments


A dual challenge Card. My first challenge was to complete a card using embellishments. I decided to dip into my stash of "Pretties" Pearls and place them on the inside of the flowers. A little Double Stitched Pomegranate Ribbon highlights the images that have been stamped in Chalk ink, which was my Second Challenge.

It was a Huge Challenge as well, adding the faux stitching with the stamp from the All in a Row set. I have been totally in awe of how Beate uses this stamp so perfectly and thought I should give it a try. I would say that I am fairly happy with the results given that is it my first time. The trick is to rock the stamp ever so slightly to ensure you cover both layers of paper. The Chalk ink gives such a soft image when stamped on vellum. I have had these inks kicking around my closet for eons and never really used them. Julia, the moderator for the Ways to Use it Challenge created a Beautiful Card by using Chalk inks on vellum, which was Totally my Inspiration for this card.

  7. Very pretty. Chalk ink is lovely as it adds a softness not seen at times with dye inks. Love the pearls you used on the flowers.
