Default Chalks

I just discovered this wonderful technique. Maybe it's not new to some of you, but I was just blown away by it, and wanted to share.

You will need:

Matte cardstock (I used white)
Chalks (2 - 4 colors)
Cotton Balls
Baby Wipes


With a cotton ball wipe the chalks over your cardstock, blending the colors together as you go. Make sure to get good coverage, rubbing the chalk into the cardstock.

Now, take the baby wipe and rub the chalks, like you were blending. Don't rub so hard you make a hole in the paper, but a little bit of the chalk will come off, and leave your paper looking textured. I've just tried it twice, and both papers look different. You can dry the paper with a heat gun if you desire, but I just let mine air dry.

As an added bonus, my cardstock now smells good, too.

This is one of my pieces of cardstock:

I just tried it on glossy. You can still do it, it's just very pastel. If you rub it with the baby wipes as you are working, you do get some of the darker colors, and it almost looks watercolored.

Can you tell I like to experiment?

That looks good! Thanks for sharing. Have you tried it with the
glimmer chalk? That might be nice too

Haven't tried the glimmer chalks. Bet that would be pretty!

Very cool! Now after you've done that how does your inked and stamped image take to the paper with the baby wipe residue on it?

I used Staz-On ink and it worked very well. I'll have to try it with some other kinds, but I didn't have any problems with the Staz-On. I used the paper as a background for some ATC's I am making for a swap.

I have to go get some more ram for my computer tonight, then I can scan some of the ATC's so you can see the results.

The background was made using the chalk and baby wipes technique. I stamped with Staz-On, and colored with pens and markers.
