I have been at this all day today- I cannot stop! I am loving this. The technique challenge today is called Pastel Embossing. The image is stamped with white craft ink, embossed with white EP, then chalk over the image. I reheated the image. I also added a touch of marker and reheated. My colors were not matching the CS, so luckily I matched the CS from the new colors- cranberry to my altered chalk color. I love this set- I need to hurry up and use it- summer is almost over here in Chicago!!!

OK, so are you thinking the re-heating actually bonded the chalk into the EP better to avoid the smears I was getting? I meant to try this on my second one and forgot. This is a GORGEOUS CARD!!!! I always admire cards where people take the time to cut this little stuff out -- just beautiful!!!
