Challenge #267 At Shopping Our Stash is Learn Something New!!

So many new techniques, folds and tutorials and at Shopping Our Stash we want you to try a new one to you, something you have never tried. Well I love to try new techniques and I've done faux silk, faux leather, triple stamping, and a lot of others so I went searching and found one that was so intriguing  called Floating Chalk Prints.  I made a few before I had one that I was pleased with although the others were fine just not what I was aiming at, every attempt give a different pattern.


I found a sketch at CAS Colours & Sketch (I just might be in time to enter this) I wanted something that gave lots space to show off the technique which is very simple, container that is big enough for your paper, couple of centimeters of water, scrape some vibrant coloured chalks (I used some SU chalks) then put the cardstock in it lift up and let dry.  Hello is a cuttlebug die plate I've had for more years than I can remember. An oval and a butterfly from a package from the $$ store.


Closer look at the floating chalk background.


Another angle, there are lots of tiny specks of chalk on it, doesn't really show that well.


I would like to enter this in 

NBUS challenge #7 chalks have been hanging around for 4 years and never used

CAS Colours and Sketch #188 I flipped the sketch.


Thanks for visiting today and head over to the SOS blog and see what different techniques the rest of my teamies have done.

  10. Seriously? This is a new one on me, Barb, and, like you said, very intriguing! And very beautiful! It looks like you watercolored it, but this is way easier. I will be bookmarking this, for sure. Thank you for the inspiration and thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #7! Hugs, Darnell

  12. What an awesome background and a great choice of colours there. The butterfly is really pretty too, but I keep being distracted by the background - I'm going to have to read up on that technique. And buy some chalks! Thanks so much for joining us at CAS Colours & Sketches this week. Liz x
