Chalk it up!

Perhaps you are fans of the VersaMagic Chalk ink pad or the Clearsnap Chalk inkpad (can you say Chestnut Roan?). 

But did you know the very first chalk inkpad was Fresco?  It is different from the two chalk pads I mentioned above, because it is a dye-based inkpad and the other two are pigment.  While they dry to a matte finish, they don't have the same "chalky appearance" that the Frescos have.  In fact, Fresco pads recreate the subtle chalking colors and mottled matte finish of the Renaissance classics.  

Stop in Tuesday between 12 & 2 and compare the differences between the Chalk pads.  I think you will really like the effect you get with Fresco.  You'll see how easy it is (because of the hard felt pad that dye inks have) to highlight embossed images.  Come see me!!!
