One of the cool techniques I taught at my technique class was the Chalkboard technique. It is super easy and so fun! It requires Basic Black card stock, Whisper White craft ink, an embossing buddy, a sponge and a stamp set...lined images work best.
1-cut your basic black card stock at 5" by 3 3/4"
2-take your embossing buddy and smack it on the card stock...it will generate powder. Shake off excess.
3-stamp your images in white craft ink.
4-take your sponge, dab it in the white ink, and lightly sponge around some of your images, and near the corners. Not too much!
5-adhere your black card stock to a mat measuring 5 1/2" by 4"
6-adhere mat to card base.
I used the stamp set Raining Flowers (# 122765) and the sentiment from Made For You (#126342)
