Chalkboard Kindness

It's super easy to create the look of chalkboard art on a handmade card.  Ready to try it?

I began today's card with the Black Licorice Card Stock.  I cut the card stock to 3.75" x 5", and stamped the image from the  Your Kindness stamp in Clear Pigment Ink, and sprinkled it liberally with embossing powder.  After that was heat set, I used the Whip Cream PanPastel and the largest sponge applicator from the PanPastel set, to "scribble" on the background.  This lays down a layer of soft "chalky" looking haze.  If the PanPastel is too opaque, lightly brush a baby wipe over the background to remove a bit of color, and add to the streaky look.  To finish the image, I used a dry blending brush and the Whip Cream PanPastel to add a bit of shading to the flowers and leaves.

I matted the "chalkboard" panel onto a piece of Candy Apple Card Stock, and then added that to the printed paper background.  The whole card front was attached to an Oatmeal Cookie Card Base.  A few pearls added some more texture and the finishing touch.
