Powdered chalk with Stencil Demo

So I have a little chalk demo today using Stardust powdered chalk by Stamp N Plus. Love this stuff. I combined it with paint and applied it over a stencil. Check it out.

I masked off my patterned paper with painters tape. Plus secured it to my craft mat.

I taped this Tim Holtz stencil to the mat and over the cardstock.

I scooped out some Stardust powdered chalk and placed it in my tray.

This is how much paint I used to mix in with the powdered chalk.

Here's what it looks like after it is mixed.

I used my Tim Holtz ink blender with a new sponge to dab and apply the mixture. The stencil is taped down really well and therefore I could make little circles with the applicator when applying.

All finished. Check out the shine.

Another view of the shine, kind of sparkly.

Here it is after I removed the tape. Painters tape works well because it doesn't rip your paper if you remove it slowly and carefully. 

Then here's my card using the Kenny K image "Happy Hour". My patterned paper is by Crate Papers, die cut by Spellbinders that I inked on the inside, vellum sentiment by Studio 112, rhinestones by Want 2 Scrap and sequins by Craft Medley. 
Oh a couple more things; I colored her in with Copic markers and used Liquid Pearls, Glossy Accents, and distress ink by Ranger as well as a Tombo white gel pen and a Xyron machine for the sentiment. I think that's it.

Here it is a little bit closer. 

My demo and card are for the
