Powdered chalk idea

Idea for using powdered chalk

I did a very fun and simple thing with a metallic chalk this week. 
I simply added it to a spray mister of water and then sprayed it on a watercolor piece of cardstock for the first card and regular cardstock for the others. I used a Mini Mister by Ranger Industries to combine the two. I was generous with the amount of chalk I added to make the color brighter and more vivid. You could always use less for a fainter look. Check out my examples below.

Then after it dried I stamped these shell stamps, using a masking technique over the sprayed chalk area. The spray reminds me of sand. 

Here is a close up of the chalk spray mist. It gives a great sparkle.

Here is another example using the chalk spray mist.

I found that if you hold the mister back so the spray was lightly hitting the paper the more even of a look I got. The closer the mister was to the paper the bigger the drops of chalk would be. See example below.
