Chalkboard Technique

Filed under: Projects — February 4, 2013 @ 1:38 pm

The popular Chalkboard Technique is a cool look for your Valentine Cards.  Here I used the  Vintage Verses stamp set (FREE for SAB).  The Chalkboard Technique also looks great with the Hearts a Flutter Stamp set.

Chalkboard Technique Instructions:

1.   Stamp the sentiment with White Craft Ink on Basic Black Cardstock.  Emboss with white embossing powder.  – Don’t emboss perfectly – leave some specks and don’t heat every bit so some powder wipes off.

2.  Sponge some White Craft ink here and there to simulate a chalkboard.

3.  Doodle some lines or squiggles with a white colored pencil (I used the SU watercolor pencil).

This is a 3″ x 3″ card.  Easy and sooo cool!
