Default paisley print with chalk ink

sooooooo - can some kind soul give me a hint (or TWO) on what is involved in inking the paisley background stamp with chalk ink as opposed to the classic ink. do you use a brayer? doesnt the chalky ink get into the little grooves? how do you keep from loading too much chalk on the stamp??? thanks for any input you can provide. i have seen several gorgeous cards on coastal using the chalk pads with the paisley - it gives the paisley such a rich look!!!

I think you can just ink it directly (without a brayer). The little chalk points come out of that round holder.

As for cleaning it, I'd clean it the same way I clean my stamps after using craft ink. Give it a good scrub with a baby wipe. Sometimes I even run it under the water faucet.

Default Paisley with Chalk Inks

I found that using a large background stamp, such as Paisley inks up much better with the Chalk Inks. The Classic pads tend to dip in the center, making even inking difficult. The Chalk Inks give vivid, even coverage! Just take out that little petal of ink and tap right onto the stamp.
