Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design February Tip & Technique Blog Hop! Make sure to visit the other designers along the hop for all the great techniques and tips to be shared.
I have been obsessed with embossing, watercoloring and sequins lately (see here, here, here and here), so told myself I had to find another coloring medium to incorporate for the hop this month. Challenge accepted.
I remembered a long ago technique using Versamark and chalks, where you stamp your image in Versamark and then use a cotton swab (Q-tip) to pick up the chalk and color in the wet ink.
I used the Beautiful Botanicals set to play with this technique and love the soft look, and the unique way to color a solid image without inks or markers!
I had so much fun making this card, that I had to use this technique with the larger flower image.
For this card, I also chalked the background after coloring in the flowers, I love the blue sky with fields of flowers!
One tip for you as well, I sometimes leave the card front (and inside) without a sentiment. This leaves the card open for anything like a quick birthday, thinking of you or thank you card!
What stamp sets would you use trying this technique?
