Chalkboard technique with the Skull Flourish


Hello My Dear Stamper Friends:

Here Bibiana, with another post...
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!


I used here this nice red rubber stamp from "Lost Coast Designs", called the "Skull Flourish.

"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,
some people add extra white elements with "Prismacolor" white pencils (or markers, chalks, "Pan Pastels" etc...), like "doodling" or making small designs (stripes, dots, 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...



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 using some of this nice stamps from "Lost Coast Designs"!
