Coloring with Chalk Inks...

Happy Friday!! Today I want to share with you a quick and easy way that I've been coloring stamped images. I will take you step by step on how I created this card...the inside sentiment...I just received some NEW Hero Arts stamps and had to play with this set called, "A kiss from the sun"...Here are the instructions to create this card...

1.Start with a scrap piece of blue cardstock. I used the Pool color from Hero Arts...and cover the front of your card.

2.On white cardstock stamp the Hero Arts background stamp in soft pool shadow ink...Cut out the image and adhere on top of the blue cardstock, leaving a little room on either side.

3. Next, swipe some Hero Arts chalk ink onto a white piece of cardstock...4. After it dries...start stamping your images that you want to use and then cut them out..
(Chalk Inks I used are Grass, Poppy, Iris, and Cerulean)
I absolutely love the velvety finish it gives.

5. Stamp the HA tiny owl using black ink onto white cardstock. Once it dries, add glossy accents to his eyes and let that dry. Cut them out to create googly eyes!
6. Stamp the tree image from the set in the middle of the card and color brown. Stamp the grass image along the bottom.

7. After you put on the finishing details to each piece, (the owl on the t-shirt, the glitter on the dress, the button on the jeans, the flower gems in the trees) you can assemble the card...Hope you enjoyed! Have a wonderful weekend!

such a cute card and love the idea of getting such a smooth look to the cloths with inking the paper first and stamping over it. Great idea. Thanks for the tutorial.
