In need of some sunshine!

Hi stampers!  I've got another card with the single sunshine stamp.  Why?  Well because we got some snow!  I'm so over snow....I want spring and sun!!!!  I like snow at Christmas and it's about it, ha!   I'm also ready to run outside and it's just been too cold to bring myself to do it and now that there's white stuff on the ground it's really not going to happen!

I also tried a new technique for this card....the chalkboard technique!  Chalkboards are ALL the rage right now so I had to hop on the wagon and this stamp works great for it!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Sunshine (single stamp)
Paper:  Basic black, pool party, polka dot parade DSP, brights and 2011-2013 in colors DSP stacks
Ink:  Craft whisper white
Accessories:  Pennant builder punch, pool party baker's twine, subtles glimmer brads (retired), white embossing powder

It's actually really easy and I think it looks so cool!  You simply take some basic black cardstock and emboss your image with white embossing powder.  After it cools for a few minutes then you sponge the edges with white craft ink and then use a sponge to gently swipe a bit of the ink all over the cardstock to give it a look of chalk dust.  So easy!  And I have to say I really find the results stunning!  Just remember to have a light hand with the sponging.  You can always keep adding more but you can't take it off if you go too heavy!

Happy stamping!
