Just Us Girls #266 - Trend Week

Hi all!  It's Trend Week over at Just Us Girls, and Chris chose the chalkboard effect.  I've never tried this technique so it was a fun one for me!
 
My board looks very chalky (like my real boards in my classroom!), but it doesn't look this white in person.  I watched a Papertrey Ink Make It Monday video on this technique.  Betsy Veldman did it and I took my inspiration from her card.  I stamped all the images in Versamark and embossed them in white powder.  Then I smudged the black cardstock with some white pigment ink.  Like Betsy did, I used a white pencil and drew it frame around it.  Then I inked up each of the images in white and stamped them over the embossed images offset a bit.  The lace was added to the top.  This whole panel was popped up on dimensionals.
 
I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches as the inspiration for the layout of my card.
 
You can see more inspiration from our DT and November Guest on these blogs.
