Chalkboard Technique

Supplies needed for this project:

Stamp Set: Heartfelt Thanks
Paper: Basic Black, Orchid Opulence
Ink: White Craft
Accessories: Stampin' Up! Pastels, Eyelets, Tool Kit

1. Start with Basic Black cardstock (or any dark cardstock).

2.Stamp your first image with White Craft Ink.

3. Pounce, not wipe, with your chalks (pastels). You can use the eraser that comes with your pastels to wipe off any excess chalk on your chalkboard.

4.Stamp the coordinating second step stamp on top, using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig if necessary for

correct positioning. Use the white craft ink for this step.

5. Spray with your fixative of choice (I used hairspray for this step).

6. Finish your card as desired! I made my image into a 6x6 card, using more images from Heartfelt Thanks and the chalkboard technique. I also added three soft subltes brads.
