Newtons Nook Designs September Release -Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of Newtons Nook Designs September Release! Today, we are featuring "Fall-ing for You".  I knew the minute I set my eyes on this card that I had to create a chalkboard look with that sentiment.  It totally reminded me of walking into a coffee shop and seeing this sign. 

Want to create a chalkboard look?

Supplies Needed:
Black Card Stock
White Pigment Ink
White Embossing Power
Heat Tool

Stamp image with white pigment ink, apply white embossing powder and heat set. Now here is the magical part, it's really technical so pay attention. Take a finger and dab it in to the white pigment ink gently drag your finger left to right to left or back and forth across the sentiment. (Make sure your embossing has cooled or it will burn and stick your finger) Rub the ink around and blend it in till you achieved the desired look!
