OK, here is the link to my second try and I do like this one better -- also, I have been suffering from extremely poor quality photos the last 2/3 days and I couldn't figure out why -- well, read my description on this card to find out why -- no brains, no headaches!!! Here's my link:

Not sure I like it, but it was cool to try it...I'll probably try the technique again but with markers.

I tried again, going for an Engelbreit look - still with white craft & clear EP. I just can't get a white enough base to achieve the vibrant pastel color. Still a fun technique, though. Thanks Beth!

Well I finally got to do this one. It has been weeks since I have done a weekly challenge. Thanks for an awesome one Beth. I used Ranger Seafoam white with artist pastels (my SU ones are still packed) and marker over that. It's been awhile so let me know what you think.

Thanks

I LOVE this. I should be in bed, but I am enjoying that the kids are going back to school, and I can STAMP!!! YES!

OK, here is my 3rd stab at this. This time the chalk changed shades from Real Rust to more of a burgandy color. So, I took out Cranberry again and it is a perfect match. Hope you enjoy!

Here is my challenge, finished close to midnight!

I did not have white ink but I used my trusty versamark pad and it got the job done. I also had some paper left over from our last challenge using versamark resist. Thank you for looking!

My TLC78 pastel embossing combined with WT78 little stamps challenge. It was nice to play with my chalks. Also I have wanted to use my Painted Poisies for ages. BTW, we are finally back on our satellite service

Imagine my surprise when I saw my Serene Sunflower page used as an example for this technique. I did NOT use a blender pen and this is why my pastels are so vibrant. I used sponge daubers and my finger to really work the colour into the cooled, embossed image. I also used markers to add and intensify the colour around the centers of the flowers.

this is a great technique as it's scrapbook friendly!

If I could do it over, I'd do "look" in Whimsical and "lights" in Headline - ahh hindsight!
