Chalk Resist by Judy Jackson

Good morning from Judy Jackson! I hope you are having a great fall day. I love the colors of Fall, the crispness of apples in the fall,. the tartness of freshly pressed apple cider, and --- just the general feeling of Fall. What I don't like about Fall is that it precedes Winter and snow! But Spring does come!

I challenged myself to use the same stamp set with this technique -- using different colors -- and create two different cards. The stamps are from Stampin' Up and the background is from Cornish Heritage Farms. On the second card I did use one more from a different Stampin' Up set. I even used the same little embossing folder! I do like this technique and I have discovered that you do need to use a softer mid-tone (not pale) ink color on the background stamp.

Are you getting your fingers inky today?
