Technique Tuesday – Chalk Pastels and VersaMark

By | September 28, 2021

Hi there

I’ve got another technique to share today using our Chalk Pastels, VersaMark, a Sponge Dauber and a Cotton Bud.

For this card I stamped the large image from Forever Blossoms with VersaMark to the largest tag from the Tailor Made Tags dies. To apply the Chalk I ‘scribbled’ some to my desk pad and then using a Sponge Dauber picked up the chalk dust and applied it to the image in a dabbing motion. I also used a Cotton Bud in the same way to apply to the smaller parts of the image so as to stay within the lines.

I’ve used Gorgeous Grape for the flowers, Granny Apple Green for the leaves and Mossy Meadow for the stem. I wasn’t going to purchase the Stitched Greenery Die as I wasn’t use how much I’d use it – well this is now my ‘go to’ for backgrounds. It’s quick and easy to transform a plain white background into a subtle white background.

And then for the inside I restamped a portion of the large stamp and coloured it. I like having my inside images going ‘off the page’. Did you notice the Granny Apple Green ribbon on the tag? This was created by colouring the White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. That means I can get whatever colour I want using my Blends.

I hope that you can see the possibilities that the Chalk Pastels offer to creating wonderful projects.

Until next time …
