Chalkboard Technique

The Chalkboard Technique is one I recently tried. It is really simple, but adds a little pop to your card!

Ink a solid image stamp with white pigment ink and stamp on dark cardstock. Using a q-tip or sponge daubers, color in the stamped image with chalks. Continue to add colors to the stamped image until all ink is covered in chalk. I read that you will want to use a Swiffer wipe to carefully remove the excess chalk around your image, but I used a regular paper towel. Probably should have used the Swiffer as I noticed some smudges after I took the picture! The chalk seems to stick to the ink pretty well, but you can use an acrylic spray to seal the chalk.

This was a little Thank You set my kids gave their teachers at the end of school last year. We did carmel apples, and the kids wrote sweet messages on the inside of their cards. (I had to save posting this because I knew this would be our September challenge, hehe!)
