Sweets for the sweet

Hiya and happy Friday everyone. I think I may have gone a little crazy about this style of card ( you were warned on previous posts lol!) I am entering the "sweet" gumball cards into the crafty creations challenge this week.

The set below were a little bit of a revelation to me. I wanted to make a pretty pastel set of cards and thought of using chalks on them but as the image is quite small and detailed and I wondered how to apply it. I dug out my Stampin' Up! blender pen and painted the chalks on with it and it gave such a precise of soft effect - brill :D

Be warned again though these may not be the last of this cute size of card hee hee!

Have as fab weekend and see ya Monday xx

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamps: A flower for all seasons and occasional greetings. Ink: Black stazon, yoyo yellow, tempting turquoise, real red and various chalks. Card stock: real red, yoyo yellow, tempting turquoise, whisper white, certainly celery, barely banana and almost amethyst.  Other: My cute stamps: gumballs and rub on alphabet from stash.
