Make It Monday #211 Using Gelatos (Chalk) with Stamps with Melissa

This is a technique by Melissa using gelatos.  Now, I have managed not to buy gelatos, so I had to improvise.  I used chalk.  Do you think it has the same effect?
I also forgot to use Linen cardstock.  Darn, that would have given it more texture.

 I had to try it on Linen cardstock, so made this tag with Basic Bookmark #3
I like the look and texture with the linen cardstock.

  5. Would have never known you used chalk if you didn't tell us, Lin. Looks so similar! Both beauties, love the textured tag and the intensity of the chalking.

  6. Love the look you got with chalk. Can you tell me which set you used beside Spiral Bouquet on the card? I love those peony type flowers!

  7. Both your card and tag are so pretty Linda! And I think the chalk worked just beautifully and would never have known it wasn't gelatos if you didn't tell us! Great job!! :0)

  8. Both your card and tag are beautiful stamped! Likewise, I don't have gelatos and used chalk as well and it look equally good!
