Clean and Simple Card Making 2 - Day 4



Day 4 of Clean & Simple Card Making 2 were tips & techniques using embossing.  I modeled my card after Kristina's clean and simple version of a chalkboard card.  Both of my white gel pens have dried up so I used a white pencil crayon to make my border.




Cardstock:  Black
Stamps: Little Bear (Neat & Tangled)
Ink:  VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Impression Plate: Woodgrain (Papertrey Ink)
other: white embossing powder, white pencil crayon
