Ears to You, Chalkboard-Style

The new "Ears to You!" single stamp from Stampin' Up! is so adorable!  I decided it would be fun to create a card with these bunnies using the chalkboard-style look that is so popular in the paper-crafting world (and elsewhere) right now.  Here's what I created:

I started with a 4.25 x 8.5" piece of Wisteria Wonder, to create the square card base.  I layered some of the fun new White Delicate Details Lace Tape along the bottom.  To create the chalkboard focal piece, I started with a piece of Basic Black, and embossed the Ears to You image on it using Versamark and White Embossing Powder.  I die cut around the image using one of the Ovals Collection Framelit dies.  Then, I traced around the edge of the Framelit with a white Watercolor Pencil to create the white frame.  I sponged a bit of Whisper White Craft Ink around the image to give more of a chalkboard effect as well.

The card is relatively clean and simple, but I think it is also a quick, fun card to create for Easter and spring.  What do you think?  Have you tried the chalkboard technique for any projects yet?
