Thursday Tech's

It's Thursday again already! I need longer weeks or something...LOL I did a technique I haven't done in a long time. It is called Chalk Dusting with Baby Wipes. It is fun but a little messy. Here are the directions:
Chalk Dusting with Baby Wipes
White matte cardstock
2-3 colors of loose chalk or finely ground chalk
Clean wet baby wipe
Stamps and inks of your choice
Heat gun (optional)

Sprinkle 2-3 colors of chalk randomly onto white cardstock. Use the baby wipe and rub the chalk into the cardstock. Be sure not to rub hard enough to rub a hole in the paper. Dry with heat gun if necessary. Stamp and embellish to your liking.
I hope you enjoy it and get a chance to try it.

Oh, very pretty; I'd never heard of this either -- will have to give it a try, since the baby wipes are always on my stamp table!
