"Chalk Pouncing" Technique

Soft pastel chalks make great backgrounds for your favorite sentiments.

This technique can be achieved in TWO steps!

Step 1:  Ink the desired image with VersaMark Watermark ink and stamp on white cardstock.

Step 2:  Using small bits from a cotton ball, apply chalk colors in a pouncing fashion.  The ink will “grab” the chalk and the image will come to life.

Hint:  If you find that you need to remove chalk from a non-stamped area, a clean white eraser is the perfect tool.

The card design was finished by stamping the sentiment in black ink and adding a sparkly sheer ribbon.

Have a great weekend,
