Use your chalks and applicators to make unseen images colorful.
- Versamark® Pad
- Versamarker® (optional)
- Sponge Daubers or other applicators
- Pastels also known as chalks
Stamp images with Versamark™ onto cardstock. The flower head was stamped three times here.
Rub the sponge dauber (other other applicator) on the pastel color of your choice to pick up the color.
Dab or rub the sponge dauber over the stamped image. The chalk will stick to it.
Take another dauber and repeat to add another color.
Add more images if desired. Here, flower stems, leaves and centers were added.
Apply chalk over these images.
Step 7 (Optional)
Use a Versamarker to apply ink to other unstamped areas.
Apply more chalk.
To define your stamped images more, try outlining or doodling around them with a marker.
Finish your project.
-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.
