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.
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!!
Stamps: Grunge Collages; Sentiment from Flowers-Daisies
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.
Have fun with this Technique Challenge!! Have a great day!! Love ya.Karen

Karen, you make this chalk technique look so easy! I tried it a few days ago and totally SUCKED at it! LOL I gave up. My kids agreed, it didn't look very good. ;)ReplyDelete
