Technique Blog Hop - Chalks

The Angel Company is having a blog hop this weekend featuring chalks! If you are like me, you bought them ages ago and they usually are the last coloring method you choose to pull out...but once you, it's so worth it!

I normally apply my chalks with a Dove blender pen. That allows me to shade and seal in one easy step. Sometimes, like on this image, I take the cotton ball and rub it over a bit in areas to add more color...



I used a gel pen to add some details like the red polka dots and the trim and crown are done in yellow.



I used this week's sketch from The Angel Company's Card a Day in May celebration - do you recognize it?

Card Details: all stamps and papers from The Angel Company
Stamps: Fairytale Fun
Accessories: Miss Moxie Soar with it collection, chalks, gel pen, ribbon, scrapper's floss and buttons and Dove Blender Pen (we carry refill liquid and nibs - and the pen, of course!)
