PowderPuff Techniques with Alicia

Hello Quick Quotes friends! Alicia with you today and I have been playing with some Powder Puff Chalking inks. I was experimenting with some vellum and embossing folders. I made a three cards for a wide variety of occasions. Vellum can be so versatile. Don't forget to check out Quick Quotes wide variety of vellum quotes. Here are some tips I discovered while playing:
  • Chalk on the back starting lightly, you can always add more to achieve your desired effect
  • Layering the vellum on a white or a light color will allow more true color to show

  • For more coverage use a brush or large sponge (blue water)
  • For more detail use a cotton swab or small sponge tip (fish)

  • Ink the edges of the vellum and all layers for a pop!
  • Use brads to hold vellum down and/or use strong adhesive behind a layer on top of the vellum.
