Marbled Pastels Technique

Take a small pan & fill with about 1/2" of cold water. Take desired chalk colors & scrape off a fine dusting on top of water starting with darkest color & ending with lightest.(I used Summer Sun, Brilliant Blue & Garden Green.) Take you cardstock & insert from one end of pan & pull it out the other end. Repat above steps for each new piece of cardstock. Dump water out & star with new for each color combination. Note: I find it's easie rusing a smaller pan & using 1/4 to 1/2 sheet of cardstock.
