It's finally time for me to jump on the chalkboard bandwagon. After a false start a few weeks ago when I discovered my white ink cube was bone dry, I now have a new ink pad and Claire at Waltzingmouse Stamps encouraging me with this challenge
Kelly Schirmer's advice of using a white pencil for shading rather than offset stamping.
I used a heat gun by Paper Studio and would love to know if you think another brand of heat gun would produce better results. I'd like to think the less than satisfactory embossing is the result of the tool; however, in all probability, it's the tool's operator;so I'd appreciate any tips for embossing.
Despite the faults I find with the finished product, I did enjoy this technique and will be using it again.
But this Monday morning, after a student holiday and two snow days, I have a morning of tutoring.
Have a good week,
