Chalkboard Technique Card

I have seen so many unique cards made using the Chalkboard Technique, and I finally got around to trying one of my own.  Really easy to do, and up close it really looks like a chalkboard!
My card base is Crumb Cake Card Stock, with a layer of Pool Party, and then my layer of Basic Black.  For the Chalkboard Technique, I first took my Versa Mark Ink and stamped my images, and then heat embossed them with White Emboss Powder.  I then took a Sponge Dauber and my Whisper White Craft Ink and dabbed the white ink onto my Basic Black Card Stock. 
You can add as much or as little white as you want.  I tried to make it uneven, like a real chalkboard would look.  I then added some Sycamore Street Ribbon, which I got for FREE through Sale-a-bration.    I love this technique, and can't believe how easy it is to do.
The following were used:
Card Stock:  Crumb Cake #120953, Pool Party #122924, Basic Black #121045
Ink:  Whisper White Craft #101731, Versa Mark #102283
Stamp Sets:  Vintage Verses #129633 w or #129636 c (Sale-a-bration), Collage Curios #129099 w or #129102 c - Spring Mini
Ribbon:  Sycamore Street #130812 (Sale-a-bration) used Pool Party and Tangerine Tango Ribbons
Tools:  Sponge Daubers #102892, Heat Tool #129053, White Emboss Powder #109132
