Use White craft ink and Chalks to highlight images on dark cardstock.
- White Craft ink
- Sponge Daubers, Q-tips™ or other applicator for chalks
- dark cardstock
- Swiffer™ towel or other paper towel
Ink a solid image stamp with white pigment ink and stamp on dark cardstock.
Twist a sponge dauber in the chalk color of choice and dab it over the stamped image.
I did not wait for the ink to dry.
Continue to add colors to the stamped image until all ink is covered in chalk.
Carefully wipe image with a Swiffer™ towel to remove excess chalk.
The chalk seems to stick to the ink very well, so a sealant is optional.
Basic Chalkboard look
Use black cardstock for your base for a true chalkboard look.
Pencils work too!
Stamp an image in white pigment ink and let dry. Then color over image with colored pencils.
