Hello, everyone! I’m guesting over on Waffle Flower Blog today sharing a video about stamping with chalk ink on dark papers. Here’s a look at my project:
Chalk inks are something in between dye and pigment inks and have a lot of great properties. Chalk inks work very well on dark colors of cardstock. For the card I’m sharing today I used a dark grey cardstock and stamped a simple background using several colors of chalk ink from the Fall and Winter blends ink pads from Waffle Flower Crafts. I like how vibrant these look on dark papers (they also work well on white cardstock) and how well they overlap.
I used several stamp sets from Waffle Flower Crafts for the card I’m sharing today – I started with Hibiscus and heat embossed What Makes You Different Make You Unique sentiment using Hero Arts Gold embossing powder. I like that this is a two part sentiment and one part has a handwritten-like font.
I used greenery from the Leafy stamp set and stamped my background using greens, browns and violets. I also added little dragonflies from the Lotus stamp set stamped in grey. I’m also sharing a video tutorial showing to make this card and also talking a bit more about chalk inks. You can watch it here or on Youtube.
