T Time #1

Hello friends! Welcome to 'T' time and this is Deepti Stephens here showing you a technique -'how to use chalks'. :)

Materials Required :

1. Card stock (any size)
2. Any detailed or solid stamp, here I'm using Inkadinkado stampset.
3. Versamark ink pad
4. Chalks (any chalks will do) but here I'm using EK Success chalks because they are so vibrant
5. Sponge daubers or a cotton swab, but I suggest you to use sponge daubers because they give you nice results.
6. Sentiments (I'm using hero arts) and a black ink and an acrylic block.. :)

Ok! Now let's get in to the procedure.. I thought of making a video but things around me didn't co- operate well, so I ended up making a photo tutorial. 

Step 1

I've stamped the big butterfly in versamark ink..

Step 2

Now take a sponge dauber and dab it on to the stamped image..
Here I have a tip for you!
* always tap or dab the sponge dauber or cotton bud
* do not rub on to the image cause it will get smeared..

Step 3

I have used red, orange and yellow colors just to give an ombre effect.. ;)
* you can also see the colors that is sticking around the stamped image, you can rub it easily with an eraser, but I love that effect so I kept it that way.. :)

And here is the final card with the sentiment..

Hope you've enjoyed this tiny tutorial. Would love to hear from you..
Thank you so much for visiting the blog..
Have fun.. ;)

Now over to her..

Hello! Sindhu here. I wish to thank Deepti for inviting me to guest design for her awesome challenge blog! Thanks SO much Deepti, you are so sweet! :) 

I started card making an year and a half ago (All thanks to my husband who pushed me to be where I'm today!) and I'm kind of addicted to it now! After a stressful day at work, making cards is what I look forward to every evening.

I hope you like what I made for the current challenge. Have a great day everyone!

Thank you so much Sindhu for this wonderful card. Loved it so much.. <3
