Chalk-Ah-Lot challenge #12

This week at Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafe our challenge is Red, White and Blue. 

*You must use powdered chalks by Stamp N Plus*

For my card I used a combination of red chalks and paint to create the colored background on my label that my sentiment is on. 
If you take a bit (the size of a pinky nail) and mix it with paint or Elmer's glue or Mod Podge or Glossy Accents or Liquid Pearls you get a medium in which you can paint onto your paper. It makes for a great background and once it dries you can easily stamp on it. I use Stampin Up, Close to my Heart and Memento Inks ink pads when stamping on a chalked surface.

For other tips on how to use powdered chalk check out the website HERE

My star stamps are by Stamp N Plus (S973 and S880)
star brads by Eyelet Outlet
Ink by Close to my Heart and Stampin Up
label by Martha Stewart
die cut by Spellbinders
card base by Michael's
