Create a chalkboard look.
- Embossing buddy
- Black card stock
- Versamark ink or other watermark ink
- Heat gun
- Stamps, My Favorite Things Life's Directions used here
- White embossing powder
- White pigment ink (optional)
- White colored pencils (optional)
Swipe the embossing buddy across your black cardstock to prevent stray embossing powder from sticking to unstamped areas.
Arrange your stamps in a desired pattern and stamp each in Versamark ink.
Sprinkle white embossing powder over stamped areas and shake off excess.
Heat embossing powder with a heat gun to set the powder.
Add details (such as a border or other doodles) with colored pencils.
Use a paper towel or sponge to blend white pigment ink in the corners and around sentiments to resemble chalk dust.
Practice this step on a scrap of black card stock first to get your desired depth of color.
Finish your card using your chalkboard layer.
