FLUID CHALK INKS - Blog War Challenge - Project 2

Hi all,

Welcome to today's " Blog War " creation.

Well...they say looks can be deceiving... This card definitely fits that description...
This card may look like it was quick and easy...but it wasn't, there was a lot of pre-planning and measuring making sure the punched border and hearts were even...but after all the measurements were worked out it all came together quiet well.

I have used Blue Iris Chalk Ink (71034) also used were, Pomegranite Card from our new Earth Tone Essentials card range (4927), Vine Stamp from Treasured Memories Set (4129KO), Smile Stamp (4130KC), Starmist Bazzill (4226), Flourish Border Punch (4866), Mini Heart Punch (4870), Corner Rounder Punch and I aded some Aqua Organdy Ribbon (70605). All products used are available from Kaszazz.

When I remake this card I will make a couple of changes, as the Smile sentiment doesn't show clearly (shows up even less in the photo) so I will stamp it in a different colour, and I thought about maybe adding some colour to the vine image.

What do you think ???

Happy Scrappin'


  1. Hi Joanne,
    Wow, that is a great card. I love the colours that you used and the punching looks perfect. I don't know whether you should colour the vine in or not.
    Cheers, Fiona.

  2. I love the colours Joanne - and the ribbon is a great finsihing touch.

  3. Love this card Jo. Love the colours & I think the vine looks fine just the way it is. Very nice!!

  4. This card is beautiful, thanks for sharing

  5. What a pretty card Jo. I love the way the border came out - worth the effort eh? Maybe try embossing the sentiment in white ep or perhaps a pale blue? If you feel the vine needs something how about a little ice stickles rather than colour? I have found this will totally spruce up a card without looking too much.
    Hope this helps!

  6. Thanks Fi,Leonie, Tina, Penny and Kris for your comments Its greatly appreciated.

    When I said to add colour,I was thinking more of a highlight- not a total colour maybe with Smooch Ink - but I have to have a experiment with that a bit more..but the icestickles are a great idea (I will give that a try), and I was thinking stamping the sentiment in white..but wanted others opinions. Blue sounds like a good possibility also..Thanks for the ideas Kris.
