Oh, Hello Chalkboard

I decided to go with a fun technique today, called Chalkboard.
It is fun to do and a great masculine look.  Well,
maybe sans the flowers on this sample!
Just stamp images in white craft ink on black card stock.  
Let the ink dry completely (or hit it with the heat gun 
if you can't wait).
Then highlight some of the white images
with the SU Watercolor Pencils.
In this example, I also drew faint outlines with
the White Watercolor Pencil
Use a sponge dauber to dab "smudges", to make
the card front look like a real chalkboard.
