Hi Everybody it’s Lori with you today sharing my last design team post. I can’t say how much I’ve loved the last three years and what a wonderful company KaiserCraft is to work with. I’ll miss it very much but have a feeling I’ll still be having to get my fixes of their beautiful collections.
Today’s tip is one that is really simple but so cool looking and I thought the Something Blue Collection would be perfect for the technique. Chalk stamping.
Gathering you supplies : Clear Stamp and Block, White Pigment Ink and Black Card Stock, white pen, and clear embossing powder with heat gun.
Use a cornstarch pouch over the top of your cardstock to keep any random embossing powder from scattering over your surface.
Stamp your image with White Pigment Ink and then cover with clear embossing powder and heat set.
Stamp your image again with a slight off set and not lined up exactly. This will give a more authentic look to your chalkboard effect.
Take a dry brush and rub over your inkpad, then rub in lines over your sentiment. This will make it look like a wipe off chalkboard.
Once you put the ink on with the brush rub over everything with your finger to blend.
For the final touch you can use a white pen and make lines on the sides with a ruler and then rub with your finger, again to soften everything up.
Here is the finished card. I love the way it looks…simple but so cool.
