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 dessert...lol!
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!!
