April's technique was Chalkboard

Have you noticed all the chalkboards popping up everywhere including TV ads & there seems to be a lot in the stampin' world or should I say was, I'm always a few months behind the trends.

This was one of the projects everyone made in my classes over the weekend & I just love the words & the font in the Feels Good stamp set - aren't they fab.

Chalkboard Technique: 

  • Rub the Embossing Buddy® vigorously across Basic Black (or dark coloured) card stock.
  •  Stamp image/s with VersaMark®.
  •  Pour white embossing powder onto the inked image, making sure that the image is coated. 
  • Shake off excess powder and funnel it back into its container. Use a small paintbrush to remove any specks of visible embossing powder.
  •  Heat the embossed image with the heat tool until the powder changes to a shiny liquid and rises. Allow embossed image to cool.
  •  Rub Whipser White craft ink on the dark cardstock, to create an erased board look.
  •  Outline the card stock with a white pencil (or gel pen). Can use a ruler or doodle.

My card was a case of this fabulous swap of Ann Will's I received (her version is Pool Party & Rich Razzleberry).
