Teared Paper Technique with Chalk Colours

Hi Friends !!
Today i am sharing my favourite colouring medium technique (chalk colours) with teared paper technique. I have made these cards in the past using these colours- Ombre Card, Stencil Card, Post it Note. I find these colours easy to use, produces great blend & gradient of colours and cost effective too.You can use this technique with any type of colours. I took the pictures of the whole process after completing it..hehehe.( i am a lazy girl ). But i am sure you will get the technique.
P.S. - Picture Heavy Post
I am using these Chalk colours manufactured by Camel in India. These colours does not comes with an applicator, so i am using cotton balls or ear buds for smaller areas.

Take a waste piece of cardstock or any paper , but it should not be too thin. Place it on your card where you want apply colours, in this fashion.

Now take a cotton ball and rub it on the desired colour -

Apply this colour on the cardstock in between the teared paper -

In the similar fashion, take another cotton ball and apply second colour. You can use any number of colours. I have used only two colours - green and orange

Keep the teared paper in place and do some stamping

You can apply the same technique on different areas of your cardstock.So here is my finished card using this technique .I have used chalks in three different areas of the card.

For this card i have also made 2 punched flower embellishments and attached pins in them. A closer look at them -

Here is the closer look at the charm. The white bead is handmade by me.
