More Pink Persimmon Goodness!!

Good Morning my friends!! I have some more Pink Persimmon goodness to share with you today!!  I finally tried my hand at the popular Chalkboard technique and I just have to say I love it!!!  The new Pink Persimmon Christmas House stamps are perfect for this technique!!
This stamp set is absolutely fabulous and can be used in a variety of ways!!  I can't wait to incorporate the carriage in a project!! I love it!!
I used some October Afternoon Patterned papers from my stash to highlight this card and the black patterned papers are from Glitz Design. 

I started with some black patterned paper and I stamped the main image with Versamark and then sprinkled fine white embossing powder over the image and then heated it with a heat gun.  Then I shadow stamped the image using white ink just shifting the image slightly to create the shadow effect.  Finally, I used a paper towel and blended some white ink onto the background to add to the chalkboard effect.  It's a fun technique that's rather easy and very effective.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my love of stamping!!!!
I hope you have a wonderful day!!
