Chalkboard Technique Valentine's

     The chalkboard technique is all the rage right now.  It's so super simple to do too!

RECIPE:  Regal Rose & Basic Black card stock, Red & Sliver Glimmer Paper, Versa Mark & Whisper White craft inks, Delightful Dozen stamp set, Small Heart Punch, Framed Tulip embossing folder, white embossing powder, Big Shot, & Heat Tool

Mini Tutorial:

     Start with Basic Black card stock.  Stamp your focus image in Versa Mark ink and use white embossing powder and heat set it.  If you'd like other stamped images on your chalkboard, use Whisper White craft ink and stamp on your black paper.  Let the ink dry before you do the next step, or your image will smear.
     Take a piece of paper towel.  Dab the paper towel in the Whisper White craft ink, then rub all over your black card stock.  Do it as much as you like - to get the erased chalk board look you are looking for.
     To do the white lines around the edge, like I did in the card above, use the white Watercolor Pencil and draw you lines.  If you want it bright like your embossed image, leave it alone.  If you want it to have the slightly erased look, like in my card, use a Blender Pen and go over your pencil line.

I taught this technique in my Stampin' Nite class  and at a Private Card class earlier this month.  All the ladies I taught this technique to just LOVED it!

The fun thing about this technique is that you can use it for all occasions.  The possibilities are endless!
