Have A Ball

   Hi everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug and I'm sharing a stenciled chalk background tutorial. I've gotten so used to using ink blending for my backgrounds, I forget how easy and beautiful this technique is.

I started this project using the Geo Triangles stencil and Versa Mark embossing ink with a dauber.
 NOTE* in picture below, I used a sheet of blue paper so you could see it better but I used white for the actual card.

I started by placing the stencil over my card base and using the dauber and Versa Mark Ink, I daubed in the design.

After the inked design in filled in, I removed the stencil and started adding my chalk.
I used a cotton sponge, adding some blue chalk, and rubbing lightly over the design.
For a more vibrant look, you can add several layers of chalk over the ink.

 After my card background was complete, I added a strip of matted decorative paper to the background and stamped the sentiment at the top.
I stamped and colored the Katy-Have A Ball stamp with Copic Markers and added it to the card  on pop dots.

I hope you all liked my project for today and thanks for visiting!
Have a great day!
