Chalkboard Art Technique

Chalk technique

This is the masculine card that we made at Stamp Camp last month for Valentines Day. I really like the way it turned out, so I used it for my Darling husband’s valentine. He loved the new technique. The technique is very simple. Add a chalkboard background by rubbing a little chalk or white ink on black or green card stock with a sponge. I like to emboss my main images using white ep to make them easier to work with. You can then add depth, detail and even color with colored pencils or our white chalk pen. Add additional elements by stamping in white ink with no embossing. Be sure to add those elements after the embossing or they will grab your powder.

Have fun trying this technique!
