Chalked Backgrounds

I found this neat technique for backgrounds and wanted to share.

You will need:
Cotton balls
Baby Wipes
Matte cardstock

Rub the chalk into the cardstock, using cotton balls. I used several different colors of chalk. When you are done, wipe the chalk with baby wipes, blending as you go. The baby wipes will set the chalk, so no sealer is needed. I let dry naturally, but you can speed up drying time with your heat gun.

Your paper will have a textured look.

When dry, use Staz-On ink to stamp your image.
