I’m trying out some new pigment inks called VersaMagic Dew Drop inks. Their write-up says their opaqueness is perfect for stamping on dark colored paper, including black. I love the look of chalkboard cards, so I thought I’d give them a try.
I started out with some thick black cardstock and heat embossed my jar image onto it with some white embossing powder.
I finally gave my husband back his industrial heating tool that I’ve been using for years. While I was on vacation, I picked up a small folding embossing tool at Hobby Lobby. It’s from Paper Studio, and it works really great!
Stamping out these flowers is what took up the majority of my time for this card. I stamped each one at least three times to make it dark enough to see on the black cardstock.
I drew in the stems with a white colored pencil and then colored over them with green. I had to use the white colored pencil first, or the green pencil wouldn’t show up on my card.
After the ink was dry, I went over my flower images with Prismacolor pencils to add even more color. I could have stamped out my images with white pigment ink first and then added the colored ink, but I wanted to see how these inks would look on their own. I like these VersaMagic inks, but I think they perform better on white cardstock. They are really bright pretty colors when stamped on white.
Below is the video of how this card came together. You can watch it here or on my YouTube Channel in HD.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!
