watercolor chalk tutorial

First I want to say, Keep praying for Tyler, hes fighting and I think prayers will help his fight. Thanks!


Ok so I think I made something new. It was an accident and well I liked it so…


a stamp- I used Gina K’s Tropical Windows.

Versamark Water mark stamp pad

chalk any kind

Pink Pet eraser- this might be important to use this brand- please let me know if you get the same effect

a sponge- I cut mine up from a BIG yellow one- I “borrowed” from hubbys stuff. wonder if he’d want it back cut. lol

Card stock- I use Georgia Pacific white smooth I get it at walmart or target

you will also need other things to make the card you wish.

additional things I used-

green cs, green ribbon, cuttlebug embossing folder, tape,

1- take your stamp and make sure its clean- clean it and wipe it on paper towel to make sure

2- chose the color chalk and get it open

3- “ink” up your image with the Versamark make sure you get it all- slight tint so you could see it.

4- stamp it on a piece of white CS

5- take your chalk, using the sponge dab you image- some call this pounce, do whatever it takes to get     it chalked.

6- after chalking smooth the chalk into the image making sure its really chalked. let sit a few mins. clean up your mess in the mean time

7-  take you pink pet eraser and start to lightly erase the chalked image.  start with the non-stamped part. then make sure the image is dry. then erase on that. It will leave a watercolor looking image on the card stock.

8.Then make a card.
