Using the new shimmer chalks and the stitch and craft stencil. I used stick it masking tape to stick the stencil to the card stock and then using either a piece of sponge or a cotton bud apply the chalk through the stencil. I used the timeless card stock and it did stay put with out any fixative. If you do want to fix it use a cheap hair spray. They say a quick spray from a distance sets it o.k.
