Keeping this one simple ... this is my attempt at the chalkboard look.
I used Basic Black cardstock, used some white Staz-On ink
and sponged a few "eraser" marks, then stamped the sentiments in
Versamark ink and embossed with a 50/50 mixture of
white embossing powder and clear embossing powder.
I wanted the white to get diluted a little bit and not be so white,
so I mixed with the clear embossing powder.
After you're all embossed and beautiful, then just take the white gel pen
and make a border and some doodles around the heart. I used the Polka Dot Parade
Designer Series Paper and Pool Party paper for the flags and cut the hearts with the
Hearts Framelits and Big Shot.
The base cardstock is the Naturals White cardstock.
