This card is completely chalked. I got it all chalked, cut out and everything mounted and then choked on some pop and spit all over it...........sheesh!!
Chalk is always going to give you a softer look to your cards. I usually chalk the picture how I want and then spray in with cheap hairspray. On this card, I wanted more highlights than I could get with the original chalking. So after spraying and drying, I chalked the areas that I wanted darker and sprayed again. I wanted it darker so I did it again.
Hint: You can set your chalk and then chalk over it being sure to spray inbetween chalkings. Works great!!
