Card for Four Challenges

This is my first chance to post a challenge card with my new looking blog. I don't need any excuse to look at my blog now as it's so beautiful.

I recently bought some chalk pencils as I'd seen them used on a Stamp Addicts show. I use watercolour and I know there are mediums like Promarkers, Sakura pens etc but sometimes you don't want it bright but subtle. These certainly do the trick. I struggle with normal chalks with my dodgy hands and eyesight but these are perfect. they feel strange to use but are fab.

This card fits the criteria for four challenges:

ABC Challenge - D is for die-cuts

Paperplay Challenge - no patterned papers

Stamp Something - your favourite embellishment - well that has to be ribbon and fibres

Just Magnolia - embossing - I used the Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder

Wow Kym four challenges in one that is awesome as is the card you have created of course I love Tilda and what a fabulous job you have done with her. I saw those chalk pencils on C&C as well I will go add them to my wish list because as you say it is nice to be subtle at times I often want to do soft colours but I have never been very good with chalks.

Great card, Kym. I love the shapes and colours you've used, and you've achieved the subtle look you were going for with the colouring - it's lovely.

Thanks for joining us on PaperPlay this week.
