Chalk Art with Unity Stamp Co!

Hi everyone!!

Have you seen or heard about Chalk Art?! It's pretty much catching on in the craft world and I've seem some of the original chalk art that just blows my mind!! I've always admired beautiful lettering and it takes that to a whole new level! Well, thankfully, for someone like me, I don't have to brush up on my (non existant) lettering skills because you can achieve gorgeous chalk art like effects with your STAMPS!!! Here are a couple of my first attempts using stamps from Everyday Fairytale {KOM 12/12} & All Hearts and Love {KOM 1/13} 
 

Isn't it fun?! This one is my favorite - it is fun to add pops of color with colored pencils in this technique. I'm working on a video that will be ready next week on the two different techniques I used to get these cards so be sure to subscribe to UnityTV so you don't miss them or anything else!!
