Chalk board technique tutorial

Hello all!!!
its kavitha here to share another inspiration and tutorial on this month theme “Expressions of Love” and   "HEAT EMBOSSING"
 Chalk board technique is in  hot trend now in paper crafting world.When i saw this technique first, i remembered how we use to draw(or scribble in black board)in school days when teacher was not in class:). May be that should be one of the first step for many people in art world:)

You need some good sentiment stamps and few designs like flourishes or anything related to the theme you are taking(i have taken a LOVE theme here).First stamp the main sentiment in the center of the black card stock with versamark ink and then sprinlke opaque white embossing powder.Tap the excess powder and emboss it with heat gun.

Build on your design with various sentiment and design stamps.Its not necessary to have so much of sentiments and designs..this is my first time doing this,so i went a little over board..hehe.Once finishing the heat embossing part,stamp the same sentiment with opaque white ink a little away,so that it will give a reflection effect(this step is not compulsory)

I have also done some doodles with versamark embossing pen.The side line,scrolls in the top are made with them.versamarker pen is very versatile,you can create your own handwritten sentiments,doodles etc.Just draw with them,pour the embossing powder,tap of the excess powder and heat it.

Once you finish everything take a soft cloth and blend some frost white ink here n there to give a realistic look.Thats it..your chalk board is ready and you can use it on your card and decorate it.
Here is my card with it..

Supplies used:
 VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad
 VersaMarker Watermark Pen
 Ranger Heat It Tool - European Version
American crafts zing embossing powder-white
Color box frost white ink pad
 FIskars-Lasting love stamp set
