Baby Card with Chalk Markers

 The chalk markers are by Chalkola and you can get them at Amazon US and Amazon UK for a low price. You can get 20% off your purchase price on Amazon by using the code CHALK20A at the check out. They have a set of 10 beautiful colors that have a 6 mm bullet tip for writing or drawing. The chalk marker flows very well after the initial prepping the nib, which is super easy to do and your kids will probably do it for you. I think these will be popular with teachers because they are great for chalkboards and dry erase boards.You can also give your kids hours of fun time playing and creating with the new Chalk Markers. The markers are suggested for Non Porous surfaces but I'm using them on paper and having a great time with them. 

I just love the outcome of this card. I don't want to sell it because it's so dang cute. Starting with the Baby die cut, I colored white chalk marker onto what was grey cardstock and then I put polka dots on those letters. It's not perfect but I like the imperfections. The nib of the chalk marker is perfect for making the polka dots.

I followed a sketch at Scrapbook.com for one of their challenges. The white and brown die cuts were cut out using my Cricut and the Art Philosophy cartridge. The word baby Is also a Cricut cut from Cricut Fonts and Basic Shapes which I found in the Cricut Craft Room software. I did dry emboss the brown circle with a Darice folder. The flowers I used are by Petaloo and in the center is a baby bottle eyelet. The leaves of the flowers are a Elizabeth Crafts die that I die cut them out in white cardstock by Recollections and inked them with Ranger's Walnut Stain distress ink. Then I sprayed them with water mixed with Perfect Pearls so they would shimmer. The background paper is by Studio G.




Thanks for looking.
