Chalkboard Inspiration

Entering this for the 365 Cards : Day 136 Imagine This chalkboard inspired cards.

I love those signs in stores these days with the chalk drawings, and this Chalkboard technique kind of gives that feel. Uses white Craft ink with chalks daubed on to add the color. You can use black or any other dark card stock, the effect is more intense than using just versamark because of the density of the Craft ink. Make sure you wash your tools well :-)
Want to try it yourself? Check out the great tutorial over here from the ever fabulous Beate Johns. I took my color inspiration from her tutorial card, but I'm using my new favorite Medallion background stamp. I think its just too pretty to use as a background, don't you?! (And, lets face it, really - they are ALL my favorite sets... Sigh.)
