Glimmer Chalk Backgrounds

At the Westminster, MD StampScrapArtTour, we did a make-and-take using black cardstock and glimmer chalks. If you're a fan of our Facebook page, you've probably already seen some ATCs that convention-goers made at our booth using this technique. I decided I'd share the technique with everyone.

We started with a black ATC blank. We then rubbed the glimmer chalks onto the black cardstock - wherever. The background was immediate, and visually striking! Our make-and-take artists finished their cards by running gold PearlEx ink around the edge and adding images and embellishments.

I also tried this technique using templates from The Crafter's Workshop. LOVED the results!
