For this week's challenge, I invite you to try the Drunken Chalks technique. Here is my example:
First, I made my background using the technique and, once it was completely dry, I simply stamped a silhouette design on it, to ensure that it would come out nicely, without getting lost in the color. The stamp is from the "Nature Silhouettes" set from Magenta (CSET33), available at the store.
You will need:
- White glossy cardstock
- Your choice of 3 colors of chalk ink
- Metallic pigment ink (I used Encore from Tsukineko, in Champagne)
- Mini Mister filled with rubbing alcohol
- Spray acrylic sealant
- Using the direct-to-paper technique, apply the lightest chalk ink color randomly on the glossy cardstock.
- Repear with the second color and the darkest last.
- Spray rubbing alcohol on your background until colors begin to run.
- Let dry completely.
- Once dry, apply metallic pigment ink all over. Mist with alcohol again, until colors run. Let dry completely.
- Spray acrylic sealant. let dry.
- Finish your card.
