Friday Freebie 003/17 - Pink Chalk

Hi Everybody,

Todays card was featured in a video a little while ago using chalks and the effect is a soft and gentle look

The video ... Create a Chalk Background  .. uses some pastel chalks that I have in my stash and they are something that was really popular a few years ago.

It seems to have gone out of favor and so I thought it time that I got mine out again and use them.

I bet you are like me in buying things,  using them for a while and then something else takes your eye and you move on,  and forget about the other stuff you have

Well if you have chalks then give them an airing and you are sure to like the effect.

But don't forget that can of cheap hairspray to spritz the card as that will set the chalks and stop them rubbing off the card again and spoiling the look.

Now if this is a card that you would like then all you have to do is leave me a comment and come back tomorrow and check if it is your name that is listed as the winner. You have 72 hours in which to claim the card and then you will be too late

I am happy to send the card anywhere you live and you don't need to have a blog of your own either
I add a card every Friday so just add your name and you never know YOU could be the winner

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  22. Hi, Christina,
    I loved this card when I first saw it in the video and I love it still. It screams 'Christina' to me when I look at it because it has your trademark flowers, ribbons and pearls and of course it's your favourite colour...pink😊

    A lovely card on offer today. As you say I bought chalks when they were popular, but haven't used them in quite awhile now. So when I get home I'll be getting them out along with my embossing folders and having a play.
