Chalkboard Technique...

Hello My Dear Stamper Friends:
Following with the "black and white" theme, see my post on a  "Gothic Invitation for Halloween" I decided to share this other "black and white" card with all of  you today....

For quite some tome I wanted to showcase this trendy technique called "Chalkboard" and what a better way to do it with a stamp for Halloween and to continue with my color scheme: "black and white"!


I used here this nice red rubber stamp from "Lost Coast Designs", called the "Skull Flourish" and I featured this card at the "Lost Coaster's review Blog" as part of my contributions as a DTM.

"The Chalkboard Technique" is quite simple but very pretty..it is basically an "emboss resist" technique but only made with white embossing powder and white ink on black cardstock!

You follow the same steps as for an "emboss resist" (heat emboss an image in white Embossing powder) and when cool you will "rub"/sponge over the top and in certain areas white ink...



You can add extra "white" elements with "Prismacolor" white pencils (or markers, chalks, "Pan Pastels" etc...), like "doodling" or making small designs:
-stripes
- dots
-crisscross
-shading etc... around the image...
giving the illusion as if you where using a black board and chalks as it used to be in the school classrooms...

See my "not so good sample" :) with the extra elements...
next time I will be more careful in drawing and not adding to much "white ink" because in my sample it looks a little bit "messy", but I decided to show you anyways what I meant by adding extra elements...




The background was stamped with the "Crackle Background" stamp in black over white cardstock, I added a "flourish" from "Spellbinders" and die cut the main panel with a "Spellbinders" label...added some "doodling" with silver "Stickles" and that's it...

Ok my dear friends, I hope you give it a try this fun "chalkboard" technique, and remember if you are new to my blog browse around and if you like what you see subscribe to my blog to receive my notifications of when and what I will post here...
