USING CHALK TO COLOR


I purchased this Darice embossing folder a while ago and decided to pull out my chalks to see what I could do with the flower design.  I found it very hard to color just the raised portion of the design so after I added that color, I took the sponge and rubbed it all around on the design and got the chalk "smeared" enough that it gave it kind of a shadowed look.  I think I like it.........just not sure if it looks messy or shadowed. 

I'd love to hear what you think!  Thank you for stopping by today!

Your chalking gives the flowers a really nice soft look, not "smeared" at all but shadowed.

I thought you purposely made it that way so I thought it was perfect, and not messy!

I color 99% of my work using chalk because it's so forgiving. I thing that projects look linder with coloring outside the lines when it comes to chalk.

I really like the effect of rubbing the chalk around to give it a shadowed look. I will have to use my chalks and try it. Very pretty.

If you think it looks too messy, you can clean it up with chalk erasers. I like it!

If you think it is too messy, you can clean it up with a chalk eraser. I think it looks fine.
