Poppin Pastels at Technique Night

Tuesday night's class was fun and there was such a GREAT group of girls! We tried out the new Clear Mount Stamps and practiced our hand at the "Poppin Pastels Technique." The card shown was the sample we made so that we could try our hand at this really simple technique.


Step 1

Stamp images with Versamark™ onto cardstock. The card above was stamped several times using the images in the Vintage Vogue stamp set.

Step 2

Rub the sponge dauber (other other applicator) on the pastel color of your choice to pick up the color.

Step 3

Dab or rub the sponge dauber over the stamped image. The chalk will stick to it.

Step 4

Take another dauber and repeat to add another color.

-The pastels will rub off a bit. You can avoid that by spraying your chalked image with acrylic sealer.
-This is a fun activity for smaller children. Stamp images in Versamark, give them a sponge dauber and chalk and tell them to rub over the cardstock until they find it.
