Prettie Wednesday...Chalk It Up...

Hi everyone! Happy Prettie Wednesday!

Two weeks ago, Charmaine challenged us to make a card using pastels/chalks...now, PLEASE let me preface this by saying that I have NEVER colored with chalks (and you can totally tell by my card!!). I WAS going to tell you that Meredith colored this, but I will fess up and admit that I did! This sure was a challenge for me!!!

I used Simply Special and colored the image (if you can call it coloring...) with Stampin' Pastels. I layered it on some circle nesties and the DSP is the retired SU! Petals & Paisley (can you tell I am trying to use up old DSP to make room for more? LOL).

This card is on it's way to Jackie R! You can see what all the other Pretties, including the newest Prettie Girls, Frances & Christi, did with this challenge right here!!

  3. I think this is just beautiful, Jodi! I LOVE it!

  4. I think it's CUTE, Jodi! LOL trust me, I am not used to coloring w/them either hee hee. I love the DP and the layout, too...now where is Spring?? Can you tell me THAT?

  5. Pretty good for being colored by Meredith...heheheh! You did a fabulous job here Chickie...don't know what all that belly-aching was about last night! Ok..off to dig out my pastels now!

  6. Oh Jodi! Love this!! I haven't used my watering can images yet (gasp), but now I am inspired to. Oh, and have you seen my blog this week??? Go take a peek!!

  7. Shutup...it isn't that bad...hehehehe!!! Did you see mine????GAGGGGGG

  9. Jodi, you are so funny! You couldn't make a bad card if you tried! Your pastel coloring is just fine. What did you use? I like using a Blender Pen, but just touch the edge of the pastel "cake" because it will harden that area. Try that and see if it helps.

  10. I love that water jug stamp, all the cards I see with it are so great!

  11. Beautifully done Jodi! You do such a wonderful job mixing patterned papers! It always turns out fantastic! :D

  12. Hell-O! This is BEAUTIFUL, Jodi!!! Love the colors and your pastel coloring uh, ROCKS!!

  13. This is so cute! I love the fresh colors! So bright and springy! I love it! TFS

  14. P.S. I added you to my blog roll...i hope that is okay!

  15. It turned out fabulous Jodi! Love those bright non-Winter colors! :)

  16. I think you did a great job on this...love your coloring with the pastels and your papers and colors are gorgeous!!!
