Dynamic Duos #71

This week at Dynamic Duos we have Basic Black paired with Crumb Cake. We also have a dessert option....and who doesn't love dessert....of adding wet embossing to your project!

I have really wanted to try out the trendy Chalkboard technique since this seems to be so hot right now and when I saw that part of the Duo was black.....well....this was the perfect opportunity to give it a go.
This also allowed me to use the dessert option. I love!
Cardstock: SU
Rhinestones: Recollections
Ribbon: MME
Ink: Colorbox
Stamps: Wplus9
Pen: Uniball
Other: embossing powder, chalk, Versamark
I took a piece of chalk and rubbed it over the black cardstock and wiped the excess off with a paper towel.
I stamped my images with Versamark and embossed with white powder.....there's my dessert!
Then I re-stamped with white ink just off setting the image.
With my Uniball signo pen I drew a border around the edges.
Voila!!! There is my chalkboard technique!
I also have a Christmas card done too. Woot woot!!
I am submitting my card in the Back to School challenge at Ribbon Carousel. 
I was inspired by Julie Campbell's video:
