Good afternoon! 

I'm back with another card for you, its a really simple one but showcases a hot new technique excellently! 

So what's the trendy new technique? Chalkboard effect! 

Those of you really young ones might not even know what a chalkboard is - in a world of computerised boards or dry erase boards, anyway, for anyone that has seen a chalkboard you'll know there's always a cloud of white powdery dust encircling it! 

Stamp Set: Amazing Family
Ink: Versa Mark, White Craft
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Basic Black
Embossing: White Emboss Powder
Ribbon: Basic Gray/Basic Black Two Tone
Extras: Essentials Paper Piercing Pack

So to make a chalk board technique you want to emboss your image in white onto black just as you normally would and then leave to cool for a moment. Then taking a sponge with a litle white craft ink on it dab, sponge, and swirl it on lightly to create your chalkboard "cloud". And voila, you're done! 

Hope you enjoyed! 

Thanks for stopping by!
