Birthday Collage...FUSION Challenge~Chalkboard Baking

Hello,

Welcome to the newest edition of the FUSION Challenge~Chalkboard Baking. Love that image,especially the wooden rolling pin with the teal handles! So cool! The cupcakes look mighty yummy, too! The sketch: another user-friendly delight!

A trio of cards...and the first is my nod to the chalkboard style. I'm not an embossing-powder embosser (for a # of reasons). I love the look when other people emboss; I'm not a fan of my results. This one, however, I rather like....and that's 100% due to the fabulous Uniko Block Party Birthday stamp. Isn't it awesome?  Embossed, a bit of colouring and done...


I  made a second, using distress inks (cracked pistachio and peacock feathers) for the background....

and a third (spiced marmalade, picked raspberry).

And that, my friends, is a wrap!

Please head over to see my team-mates' creations for marvelous inspirations:


Looking forward to seeing your designs in the FUSION gallery!

  1. WOW! WOW! WOW! Stamping a HUGE image like that so perfectly is not an easy task! Well done pal! Did you use the Misti?

    Gorgeous, flawlessly blended colors on your inked backgrounds! Great choice of coloring paring too. Love the two pops of color on the black base!

  11. Hi Carol! How nice to see you in our W2CB gallery. Hope you are well. Now, as for those cards... I love all three versions. (Isn't it interesting how different inks can create such different looks?) Thanks so much for joining us at Words 2 Craft By. We always love seeing your works of heart. :)

  13. Once you find the right recipe you might as well make multiples. These are all wonderful cards, Carol. I love the color combinations on the last two.
