Chalking Technique with Kate!

Good Morning!  Kate here today to host the blog for you.

Quick Quotes Chalking Inks are one of my favorite mediums for stamping, distressing and chalking techniques, but I do so love figuring out new and creative ways to use the Chalking Inks!  Today I am sharing my newest way of using the Chalking Inks...painting with them.  This is such a simple technique and it has such a wonderful effect.

I created this cute Halloween card using the Dusty Road 6x6 Paper Pad.


The purples in this line are perfect for a Halloween card, but I needed to pull in some green and orange to compliment the Halloween sentiment I used from the Sentiments Bundles.  I painted Limeade Chalking Ink on the purple/cream striped paper.  The painted background paper and the sentiment are edged in Mango Mai Tai Chalking Ink.

Check out how easy it is to paint with Chalking Inks in my video!
