I was inspired to have a go myself and see what I could come up with and I was so chuffed with the results that I've done a Tiny Tutorial.
It's so easy to make these fab little chalkboard accents ...
- scrap black card
- Versamark watermark pen (or other colourless ink or glue pen)
- white embossing powder (I used Stampin'Up!)
- small paintbrush
- heat gun
- foam tape or dots
- strip of recycled packaging
- pair of scissors (which didn't make it for the photo shoot)
- chalk inks (optional)
Step One ...
... draw a shape on the black card with your watermark pen - simple images work best and a pen with a broad tip gives a good chalky effect.
... sprinkle embossing powder generously over the whole thing - you can see I have scrap paper underneath to collect the unused powder and tip it back into the pot.
Step Three ...
... heat until the powder melts and sets - I love this bit!
Step Four ...
... cut the shape out
Step Five ...
