I'm determined to not be such a procrastinator! So for this week's Peachy Keen Challenge, I made a Back to School card for my daughter's 6th grade teacher for the first day of school.
The Peachy Keen Challenge #25 is to make a card using chalk. You can find that challenge here. This was really challenging to me, because I've hardly ever used my chalks! I love them, but they're one more of those items that get put away and not pulled back out for a while. But I'm glad that was the challenge this week. Maybe I'll use them again a few more times before I put them away again.
I used Stampin' Up! chalk for the rosy cheeks of my backpack (cut with Cricut's Locker Talk cartridge) and on the alphabet background (Stampin' Up!). I inked it with Versamark watermark ink, then rubbed the black chalk on it to reveal the letters. This was a new technique for me--I had read about it, but this was the first time I'd tried it. I think it worked pretty well!
The other supplies I used are Bazzill cardstock, twine from We R Memory Keepers, button from my stash, brads from Paper Studio, "ABC" stamp from TPC Studio, and of course the cute Peachy Keen Stamp from Wide-eyed kids set.
Now pull out your chalks and give it a go--see what you can come up with and enter it in the PKS Challenge #25 here.
