Chalkboard technique

I tried a new technique, thanks to a challenge here, at Ann's Creative Nook. She challenged us to make a card using the chalkboard technique. What's that? Basically, you stamp an image (using craft ink) onto a dark color card stock. DON'T heat set. Instead, use chalks to "color" the image.  (Ann has a link to a tutorial on her blog, linked above.) I love the results and this will definitely be something we try in one of my card workshops. I know this card is very plain, but my focus on this one was trying out the technique.  The stamped images are Stampin' Up!

I'd encourage you to give this technique a try.  It's very simple and the results are stunning!  Thanks for stopping by to visit.  Blessings to you.
