Week of Unity Day 1...comment candy!



ANOTHER week of Unity?!?! You betcha! I love my Unity stamps and they haven't had enough love lately, so I'm hosting another week of Unity projects. Leave me a comment each day for a chance to win a Unity single of your own! I'll use Random.org to pick a day and then a comment, so make sure you comment EVERY day!


Today I'm sharing a very simple one-layer card using a technique I've never tried before called chalk popping. Maybe you've heard of it? You stamp your image with VersaMark, then use chalks to go over the image. The chalk sticks to the VersaMark. I chose to rub a little harder on this project so that some color would show up within the outline. Because this medium gives such a soft image, I also let the chalks stray outside the lines a little, too.

supplies ~ cardstock: stash, Versamark,  chalks, image: Unity KOM {...another sweet day}

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a marvelous Monday!

Brilliant idea to use chalks. I luv this technique as it gives the image a very soft look and kinda different. Lovely card.
