Chalkboard technique

I've been seeing this technique all over the 'net so was delighted when a friend's class (thank you. Lesley!) focused on this technique. Here are a couple of cards we produced at Lesley's class. She had set up the stamps on a large acrylic block first. We used our embossing buddies to swipe the black cardstock first and give it a 'just erased chalkboard' feel. Then we stamped and embossed in white. I drew lines around my image in white gel pen, then we mounted the image on Stampin' Dimensionals, on Island Indigo cardstock and Sycamore Street designer paper, before tying a bow in Island Indigo ribbon. Cute, cute, cute!

Oh I love this Susan! Thanks for sharing!!! I think I might see how I go translating this to a LO on black cardstock. :)
