I have recently discovered chalking! I have looked at it, and thought about buying a chalk pallet for a long time. I finally decided to purchase a set. I have the soft colors pallet made by inkadinkadoo. The photo below is the bold colors pallet. Inkadinkadoo also has blending chalks in sets of four coordinating colors. They are reasonably priced and they work great.
This is a Circut paper doll die cut that is not chalked.
This paper doll die cut has been chalked. Can you tell the difference?? The bottom one just has more dimension! I really like blending chalks because they aren’t messy like inks and paints (although I like using those too!). Also, they are subtle, which I like.
For the elf, I just chalked around the edges of all the cardstock layers of the outfit. For the hair, I added chalk in stripes to make it look like hair highlights.
*Q-tips work great as applicators.
*If you make a mistake, you can use a chalk eraser or a kneaded eraser.
*Add chalk to the applicator by rubbing the applicator across the chalk in a circular motion
*When blending colors together, add one color at a time and then layer the colors on top of eachother.
