Chalkboard technique

Today's card features a fun technique called chalkboard.  For this technique, you start with very dark cardstock (black or I've used Night of Navy).  Stamp your image with whisper white craft ink and then dab chalk onto the image, covering it completely.  You can gently wipe away excess and use your chalk eraser to clean up any residue.  TIP: A pencil eraser also works if you're not able to find your chalk eraser!
My color combo is Rose Red, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery.  This is a flashback to Cutie Pie DSP, which was one of my favorites a few years ago.
This is a clean and simple card for sure, but I'm really happy with it!
Note: I thought I had this scheduled to post this morning, but it didn't.  Sorry for the delay!
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Circle Circus, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Paper: Bashful Blue, Night of Navy; Ink: Whisper White craft, Night of Navy; Accessories: Certainly Celery satin ribbon, chalks, circle punches (1", 1 1/4", 1 3/4", scallop)
 Happy stamping!
