Good day, everyone! Today's blog post is all about PowderPuff Chalk inks! They pack a punch in a small package. You can stamp, color and blend with them but did you know you can create beautiful backgrounds, too? Let's take a look at the Drunken Chalks technique...
Tools needed: Powderpuff chalk inks, rubbing alcohol, glossy card stock and embossing gun.
|Choose your colors and fill a mister with rubbing alcohol. Cut a piece of glossy card stock to the size you desire.|
|You can add a metallic shine by adding a gold pigment ink. Press pad directly on the glossy card stock as you did with the chalk ink. Saturate the card stock with the alcohol filled mister.|
|Use embossing gun to move the color as you did with the chalk inks.|
|Spray finished piece with Clear sealer in a matte finish. This will keep the pigment ink from rubbing off. |
|I chose a piece of the Spring Showers paper and tore a "v" shape in the top and sides of the paper. Using a hole punch and eyelets. I set eyelets along the sides of the "v" shape.|
|I laced ribbon through the eyelets and taped one set to the back of the paper and the other "v" shape I tied a bow.|
|Matted my photo from another sheet of paper from Spring Showers|
|Layered my embellishments and added jewels to the center of my flowers. I inked all my fussy cut pieces with chalk ink.|
|I added pearls to the smaller punch flowers.|
