Default Chalk Pastel ?

How do you keep the image that has been colored with chalk pastels from smudging off. I made a stack of Christmas cards for my sister to put away as a gift for her and I colored each one with chalk pastels. I noticed that they have turned the back white cardstock of each card in front the color of the image I colored I looks horrible. HELP!

You could use a commercial sealer...but I use hair spray and it works fine at sealing the chalks.

hairspray here too. I like the cheap AquaNet best...the smell brings back memories of the big hair days!

You can also put a plain white piece of copy paper over your chalked image and rub hard with your hand - this picks up some of the loose chalk on the image and forces the rest into the fibers of the paper.
