Technique Saturday!

This is supposed to be Technique Thursday and every Thursday I offer a new technique, but I could not figure out how to post pictures, I finally figured it out and now I will share my technique with you today.


The use of chalk is addictig, once you start you wont want to stop, it adds so much to your project. There are so many chalks out there today I will be using Pinc. Pebbles Inc. pearlescent chalks you can use any chalks they come in all colors check out the stampin isle at your Local Scrapbook Store (that is normally where they are found).

Step 1: Gather your materials, stamps, stamp pads, markers, paper, scissors, and chalks

(Sorry about the picture I dont know how to flip it around I think you can see my supplies)

Step 2: stamp your desired image onto a sheet of cardstock, today I used a spring flower from my Stampin Up! collection Burst into bloom.

Step 3: take your chalk applicator place a pom pom on the end and pick what color you want to chalk I chose pink, purple, green, blue, yellow.(If you dont have an applicatoryou can use a cotton ball or a Q-tip)

Step 4: cut image out

Step 5: adhere the image with pop dots or just a tape runner

Step 6: you are done!
(Picture is upside down but you get the idea I used my chalked flowers for a thank you card the Thanks is cut from cricut with base camp)

now wasn't that easy, you can use chalk on just about everything; use it to distress the edge of the paper, use it to bring out stamped images, use it on plain white cardstock to give it dimension.

till next time,

Happy Crafting!
