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.
