Chalkola Chalk Markers - Sharing 2 cards.

Hi fellow bloggers, I was recently asked if I would like to road test some Marker Pens from a company called Chalkola Chalk Markers, so I had a look at their link and found out these pens were Water Based and water reactive whilst wet. The nibs can also be changed around and could be used on many surfaces including Glass and Plastic, so how could I refuse trying them.

On this card I wanted to see how these pens would react with water in making an arty back background on water colour card. I started by scribbling a selection of colours onto my craft mat and added a spray of water to them.

Although the colour of the pens muted slightly with some water, you could still see the vibrancy from each colour and the lovely chalky finish on the Watercolour card.

Next I added some splashes of colour using my Distress Spritzer Spray I pulled the centre piece out with ease which normally holds the Distress Pens so my Chalkola Marker fitted in with ease. These are so much easier to use for adding the Splatter effect and a great range of colours.

I finished my card with die cut flowers and a sentiment mounting on to black cardstock.

This card I wanted to give my usual shabby style too and see how the markers looked shaded on my Die Cuts. On my card I have used Craft Consortium's Wild Rose Paper Pad and added a selection of Cheery Lynn Dies.

I cut my Leaf Flourish out in White Cardstock and added some of the Green Marker onto my die cut and sprayed with water. I love the shaded marbled effect and chalky finish this gave to my Flourish perfect for Shabby Chic feel.

My flowers I applied the same technique as on the background of my first card adding Diamanté. I didn't have a small pink ribbon so I coloured a white one in the same way I had my flowers running it through my Ink on my craft mat and letting it dry.

I finished off my card with a shabby splattered feel once again using my White Marker and Distress Spritzer Tool.

Thanks so much Chalkola for letting me road test these super pens and I look forward to using them on future crafty projects.
