Inspirational #136: Favorite Stamping Technique

Welcome to Red Rubber Inspirationals!
We are excited to bring you a weekly challenge that will focus on stamping and related techniques to inspire and enable you to create art!

Inspirational #136 - Favorite Stamping Technique

Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, September 10 at 11:59 PM US Central time. 

This is Kendra hosting this week's Inspirational!
Our theme this week is Favorite Stamping Technique!

For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here.

What is your favorite stamping technique?
Use that technique on your project, and share with us what technique you used!

It must be a Stamping Technique!

For my card today, I decided to use the Chalkboard Technique!
I am going to share this easy technique with you as well!

Collect your supplies:
You'll need:
Black Cardstock
VersaMark Ink
White Embossing Powder
Embossing Buddy
Embossing Heat Tool

Start by swiping your embossing buddy across your black cardstock to prevent any stray embossing powder from sticking to any unstamped areas.

Stamp your image of choice with VersaMark (or White Pigment Ink), in my case I started by stamping the Tulip from the Charcoal Flowers set!
Emboss with white embossing powder.

Then highlight your stamped images with white chalk to give the "chalkboard" feeling.
You can also use white colored pencils if you like, I just used chalk.

Pretty easy!!

Here is my finished card:
As you can see I also decided to add some colored chalk to the stamped tulip!

Both the sentiments I used are from the Wonderful News set.
And the stamped stitching is from the Running Stitches set. 


Happy Stamping!

I hope you are inspired by my Inspirational this week and link up a newly created project to this post by the deadline!  We look forward to seeing what you create!!
