Chalkboard Flowers

I just love the Chalkboard technique, it is super easy with the amazing results.

This technique works the best with the solid image stamps, you'll not get the full effect from the outline images. These flower stamps by Penny Black worked out great! Also, it's best to stamp on the dark color cardstock.

Just stamp your image with the white craft ink, then add the color using chalk with the daubers. To remove the chalk dust from the unwanted areas, use Swiffer Duster sheet to swip it off. That's it!! Since the chalk adheres to the ink, there is no sealant required!! Super easy!!

I don't know if you can tell from the photos, but I added some stickles to the images.

To stamp on the light cardstock, use your Versamark ink instead of the white craft ink and daub on the color with chalks. I did that on my envelopes and on the white layer inside of the cards.

Background stamp and the greetings are from Stampin' Up.
