Practical Scrappers Challenge- Inks and Chalks

Hi Everyone,

This week's challenge over at practical scrappers is to work with any type of chalk or ink. I actually did two cards this week that fit the bill but only submitted one. So I thought I would share my one of my projects early then share my design team submission with you on Thursday.

This card is a completely different style than I am used to. I had an idea in my head but wasn't sure how it would translate onto paper. The card ended up turning out better than I thought.

For this card I used Tattered Angels Glimmer mist in Periwinkle and Bubblegum. To create the masked image I cut out a design at 4" using the Lyrical Letters cartridge. Then I adhered it the design to white cardstock using temporary adhesive. When the design was stuck down I sprayed Glimmer mist in Periwinkle and Bubblegum. I blotted any excess off with a tissue. Then I removed the mask and a lovely design was revealed!

To finish of the card I cut out some butterflies with my Stampin Up beautiful Wings Embosslit. The butterflies were sprayed with Glimmer Mist as well. Finally I stamped a simple sentiment and Voila! A Simple yet elegant card was revealed. I was impressed with how clear the masked image was. I was expecting the lines to be more ragged but they stayed pretty true to the stencil.

This proved to be a great way to use some of my Glimmer Mist I just had to have, yet I never use! I will definitely end up using it more with this style of card.



  1. Hi Catherine! Pretty card! Great colors of glimmer mist!

  2. Love the card-great colors and technique!

  3. Love it. I need to try this technique, I have a few bottles of GLimmer mist but always forget about them! Thanks for sharing hon!
