Quick Look: Versamark and chalked cards

While the glue is drying on my latest shaped book (tutorial coming soon!), I thought I would share some cards I made.

I made the background with a single stamp on both cards.  I love how I can get a totally different look for each of these cards with different colors.

I stamped the background with versamark ink, and then dusted with a variety of chalks.  A simple focal image on a tag or matted scrap and some ribbon finished off the card.  Sometimes, limiting my supplies and choices really opens up my creativity.  These cards were the result of a skiing trip where I was limited in how many supplies I can bring.

This is also a bit like my last post - once you have a design for one card, try it again with a slight variation.  We can all use a few more cards and little more time!

What is your favorite technique to do with limited supplies?

All stamps, paper, and embellishments from Club Scrap.  Chalk from Stampin' Up!
