"Chalk Popping" tutorial for My Creative Scrapbook

Hello crafty friends!  
I'm so excited to share with you today my first ever picture tutorial!  

I am a Guest Designer for My Creative Scrapbook this month and I'd like to share with you on how to create the "chalk popping" technique and then make it into an embellishment.  I had the pleasure of creating this embellishment from the camera acrylic stamp in the June Main Kit.

First you'll need to gather your supplies:

decorating chalks - any kind will do
VersaMark ink pad
acrylic stamp - any type stamp will work
acrylic stamp block - if needed
white cardstock

Step 1 
ink your mounted stamp with VersaMark ink. 

Step 2
stamp the image onto the white cardstock. 

Step 3
brush chalk with the Q-tip over the VersaMark ink, making the image pop.

Step 4
cut the chalked image from the cardstock, leaving as much of a border as you'd like.

Step 5 
DONE!  Just add to your layout!

Easy peasy, right!?  And so cute! 
I do hope that you give this technique a try and put those decorating chalks to work.  

To those considering a monthly kit club, please check out My Creative Scrapbook!  Here's a look at the June Main Kit

Thanks for stopping by and giving me your time.
Enjoy the day and happy scrapping to you!
