    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Jane asked: "I have seen a couple of cards done using the pulled chalk technique but am unable to find it in Resources. I was wondering how it was done."
    A: Cover your cardstock with chalk. Ink your stamp with VersaMark™ and stamp right onto the chalked area. The VersaMark on your stamp will pull the chalk off the cardstock. Spray with a sealer.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Ginny has a suggestion for the Stained Glass tutorial: "Stampin' Up! has a couple retired stained glass stamp sets that work great with this technique."
