Poppin' Chalk technique (For fun challenge)

For fun challenges this week is "Popping chalk". I thought I would give it a try. Fun, I will have to work on it a bit and refine my technique. You use a versa mark stamp pad, stamp your image, then use a cotton ball, rubbed in chalk, lightly over the image. They said the more chalk you use the darker it will be. Well, I used way too much chalk.... but it is pretty cool. Once I practice it a bit more I think it will be pretty cool!

  1. Cute card! It took me a few times to figure it out too but you've done a great job on your first try.

  2. Hi CarrieAnn, I think you've done a fab job & that card is fab :)

    Thanks for joining us at For Fun this week :)


  3. Your card is lovely. Great idea! When i make my ones like this I use a pom pom (small) and then a alligator clip on a stick and pounce it. It seems to work ok and the I use a finger tip to rub it. I think your card looks great! Im really glad you did the challenge this week with us at For Fun!

  4. Adorable card...perfect stamp to use for this. So glad you gave it a try, I think it's a lot of fun. Thanks for playing along with us at For Fun...hope to see you next week!

  5. Cute card. Purrfect for a birth announcement.

  6. Beautiful card! Reminds me of the way new mums ink babe's feet and hands in their scrapbooks! Maybe it would be a cleaner idea for them to use Versamark ink and chalk instead! Thanks so much for joining us at For Fun Challenges... I hop you'll join us again!
