PTI Make It Monday #98: Chalkboard Technique

This week Papertrey's Make It Monday Challenge is to use a chalkboard technique.  I love chalkboard art and have been meaning to try it out, but just never made time for it.  Tonight I decided I would delay sleep and give it a go, and I'm so glad I did.  I had so much fun.  It reminded me of doodling in middle school.  Good times. 

The idea for the card came quickly, but finding the right stamps to use took a while.  I pulled out a ton, but in the end I only used three sets and just did A LOT of masking to get the words, letters, and partial images that I wanted.  P.S. Sorry about the dark pictures, but I was too excited to wait until there was daylight. :)

Supplies (all PTI unless otherwise noted)
Stamps: Fancy Flourishes, Movers & Shakers Sentiments, Think Big Favorites #12
Ink: Fresh Snow
Paper: Honeydew (MM), Raspberry  Fizz, True Black

Other: White embossing powder (SU), white colored pencil
