Technique Tuesday back to basics

Published by at 10:41 am under Technique Tuesday

Last weekend I hosted a party in my home for a group of ladies from out of town.  They created 12 cards.  I decided to go back to the basics with them for one of the cards.  Some ladies had never stamped before and Popping Pastels is a wowser factor when you just start stamping.


  1. Stamp images with Versamark™ onto cardstock. The flower head was stamped three times here.

  2. Rub the sponge dauber (other other applicator) on the pastel color of your choice to pick up the color.

  3. Dab or rub the sponge dauber over the stamped image. The chalk will stick to it.

  4. Take another dauber and repeat to add another color.

  5. Add more images if desired. Here, flower stems, leaves and centers were added.

  6. Apply chalk over these images.

  7. (Optional)Use a Versamarker to apply ink to other unstamped areas.

  8. Apply more chalk.

  9. To define your stamped images more, try outlining or doodling around them with a marker.

  10. Finish your project.
