Chalk-Ah-Lot Challenge #1

Welcome to the first week of the Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafe challenge. This challenge blog is the first of it's kind to require you to use chalk on your project/creation. 

The chalk that we get to play with is so much fun and versatile. It's a powder chalk by Stamp N Plus Scrap N It comes in a variety of colors that you can purchase in a set or individually. Here is a picture of the chalks:

It's a fun powder that you can use on its own or add it to other mediums such as paint, glue, Stickles, water, Gesso and much more. There are so many techniques that one could use with these chalks. The possibilities are endless. 

So for our first challenge, which will run for 2 weeks the theme is ANYTHING GOES.

For my card I used the color Gem  combined with paint and applied it directly onto the stamp using a paint brush and then stamped it onto my paper. The stamps (flourish and sentiment) can be purchased at The Stamp Affair

Be sure to check out what the other DT members did with the chalk.
