ok Ladies the challenge for this week september 18th is the chalkboard technique. what is this you ask? well it's a fun and easy technique to get us digging out those chalks that get so lonely. I'll try to add a link but if it doesn't work for you then here's the directions

Stamp on black or other dark cardstock with white ink (I used white chalk ink)
then using a q tip or dabber dab on your chalk while the ink is still wet, dust off with a paper towel and there you have it.

I had fun doing this and hope you will too. I'll have a prize for a randomly picked winner at the end of the week

Great idea, Cindi! And both you and Sue have made beautiful cards to inspire us!

I must dig out my chalks too.
Here is a little tip for anyone wanting to use chalks the easy way.......I think Cindi will agree it should qualify for the challenge????
Just stamp your image on either coloured or white paper (but black does work particually well) using a VERSAMARK ink pad, then colour using chalks and cotton wool buds. Spray with hair spray or fixative afterwards if you desire it to be more permanent.
Good luck and thanks for the challenge Cindi.

Thanks Cindi--this was the first time I have tried this technique...lots of fun! Of course I made several pieces as I experimented with various colors. I put 2 cards (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=23766&cat=628)in the gallery.
