Chalkboard Technique

If you've never tried the chalkboard technique, it's a lot of fun! Start with a piece of basic black card stock cut down to the size you want.  Take your Embossing Buddy...yep you heard me right, your Embossing Buddy, and pat your card stock with it and gently rub it across the paper.  It will leave a light dusting of powder that looks very similar to that of a chalkboard that has been erased.  Choose the stamp, in this case I used Vivid Vases and ink it up with White Craft Ink.  Stamp your image and let it dry.  Craft ink does take longer to dry than traditional Class Ink, so be sure to let your image dry thoroughly.  You can certainly take your Heat Tool to it to encourage it to dry faster.  Once it's completely dry you can finish your project.  It really is an awesome technique for stamp sets that look 'drawn' like this one and word stamps.
