Default Poppin' Pastels w/ White Craft ink question

Hi! I saw a beautiful sample of poppin pastels technique using black paper and white craft ink. I tried it, but my ink was wet and difficult to get the chalk onto it. Do I need to let the ink dry a little bit?

Thanks!
Vera

Yes, you'll have to play with the time and it depends on how much ink you have.

I had the same problem, I was smearing ink all over the place just trying to blot the pastels on. I thought if I let it dry too long, the pastels wouldnt stick. Guess I'll have to try it dry.

Another variation of this is to emboss the white pigment ink with white embossing powder on dark cardstock, then rub (pop) the pastels over that. The embossed image really grabs the chalk. For example, stamp and emboss Lovely as a Tree in white on dark green cardstock, then chalk the trees with multiple autumn colors - really striking. Linda

What kind of applicator are you using?
I just did this last week and it worked great.
I actually stamped Craft Blue Bliss onto Night of Navy.
Then used a cotton ball to dab the pastels on.
It's not as bold of a look as normal poppin' pastels, but it still looked good.

I've never had a problem either and it's one of my favorite techniques! It just looks so striking. I use the regular chalk applicators, any excess I wipe off with the pastel eraser.

You don't want to wait too long because if the craft ink is too dry it doesn't look as good. I basically "re-draw" the image with the chalks. I think it would be best to use a bold image as well. I haven't tried it on "fine line" stamps. My favorites to use are Watercolor Garden II & Spring Garden.

Hope you can get it to work for you, it's really pretty because you can blend colors together and get some nice shading and hilighting.

Oooops!! I didn't mean to load the one two times. Here was the other one that I wanted to show as an example. I sealed it afterwards with a matte acrylic sealer so the chalk would not rub off when dusting. It created a whole new look that I love.

I just tried the white craft ink with white embossing powder on Night of Navy cs. Then I chalked with the small sponge tipped applicators.
I wiped off the excess chalk with a tissue. Then I sealed it with Satin top coat spray.

I just LOVE it! That's why I love SCS so much.
You ladies always have such great ideas!

Thanks a ton.

Hi guys both of the samples posted were exactly the look I was going for! I was using daubers, but will try your ideas next. Stamperdoodle, your Spring Garden was the sample I was trying to CASE! NY Nan's Lovely as a Tree will be my next CASE attempt. My Lovely As A Tree will be arriving today. Yippee!

Thanks for your input!!

Nan,

What did you use to apply the chalk? I've used sponge daubers, the sponges and q-tips. I've never had the effect that yours does with Lovely as a Tree. Very striking card!!!

I just used the little sponge tipped sticks that came with my SU Pastels. But then I blew off any excess and sprayed it with top coat satin finish. That seemed to intensify to colors.

Glad you like it!

Nan, your sample is beautiful! Did you heatset the embossing powder, or apply the chalk when it was still wet?
Thanks, Alicia

I don't have those little sponge tips that come with the pastels anymore. They last one time and that's it! I'll have to go to the $$$ store and see if I can find something similiar.

Thanks Nan!!
