Welcome to the Damask Divas August Blog Hop featuring the Chalk It Up paper pack. If you got here from Judy’s blog, you are in the right place. You can always go to the Damask Divas blog to start from the beginning and/or to see the entire list of participants. I created a cute card using the featured papers and the new Great Job stamp set. I used the Colonial White pigment ink pad so it looked like chalk on the black paper. Remember to let the pigment ink dry well. It goes on thick so I blotted it to make it look more see through like chalk. I fussy cut the Great Job and the shooting star shapes out. I used the new Touch markers to color the shooting stars and pop dotted them for dimension. I also used the zip strip from the graphics paper to make a “ribbon” under the saying. The smaller black square is the reverse of the paper that also has a chalkboard look to it. The card base is Colonial White. I like to use the pre-made CTMH card bases that come with envelopes. You get a pack of 50 cards and envelopes for $14.95 and they look professional. I used archival ink to stamp the shooting stars since I was going to color them in with markers. The archival ink won’t bleed from the markers.
