Muse Monday-King of the Road Week 4

At Bombshell stamps we've been featuring the King of the Road stamp set in our Monday feature Muse Monday.

This is a case of FIRSTS for me this week, this is the first time I've used King of the Road stamps and this is the first time I've tried the chalkboard technique!

To create a chalkboard effect you need to stamp with clear embossing ink onto smooth black cardstock and then emboss the image with white embossing powder.
Next stamp the images again, this time slightly offset in white ink, this gives a ghosted look as if you've drawn on a real chalkboard!
Use the white inkpad to lightly brush white ink around the edges of the black cardstock to make the card look 'chalky'.

I hope you've enjoyed our Muse Monday offerings this month pop back every Monday in February to see our new Muse from Bombshell Stamps!

Happy Crafting

The white embossing for this car is spiffy and the oil drips across the car a wonderful detail
