It is time for the new Technique Challenge with Blockheads!! The new challenge is to use the Technique that Design Team Member, Leigh, calls Chalk Attraction. See Leigh's card and more details HERE.
The challenge/blog hop runs thru Feb 21st. The Design Team will pick one winner to receive a $25 gift certificate to Blockheads Paper Arts.
I used the Romeo and Juliet stamp from the Grunge Collages Set It is also available as individual stamp.
I was very pleasantly surprised at how my Chalk project turned out. I was afraid I would end up with a chalky mess. But, I followed the Tutorial and my image turned out great!!
Cardstock: White, pink, blue. brown
Orange Bag (in photo below)
Brush (in photo below)
Stamp the main image with VersaMark ink and apply the chalk as shown in the tutorial. I wanted to use the technique for my background too. I used an usual item to make the background; an orange bag. You know, the mesh type bag that the fruit comes in (shown above).
I laid a piece of the bag on pink CS. I pounched the VersaMark pad over the bag as shown in the photo below.
I used the large brush in the photo above to add the chalk to the background piece. I came back with the dabbers to add more chalk in some spots to add darker coloring. Here is a close up of the main image.
