Iused the swirls folder to emboss onto the black cardstock. Then I lightly rubbed white chalk over the raised swirls. I sprayed the cardstock with workable fixative. That keeps the chalk from rubbing off. Of course, you could always use clear acrylic sealer or hair spray.
See ya when we get back!

Supplies: Cuttlebug folders: Happy Birthday, Spots & Dots
White core cardstock
Sanding block or sand paper
Technique: Using white core cardstock, emboss with your choice folder. Lightly sand off the color until the white core shows. Just add it to your project. It's as easy as that.
This challenge will be posted on October 6th, so be sure to check out the other talented DT members and the other great folks that submit their samples.

Bee Stamp: Studio G
Cuttlebug: Swiss Dots
Nap Stamp:I think it is an old one from Inkadinkado.
**About a year ago, I took all my rubber stamps off the wood blocks. Unfortunately, I wasn't clever enough to write down all the company names, so I can't remember all of them.

In order for the cuts to "pop" I always highlight the edges either with chalk or Prismacolor marker, warm grey 20%. Then I use a black Sakura Pigma Micron pen .01. on top of the highlight. For the black cuts, I use Ranger's white Inkssentials pen. This is the best white pen around IMHO.For the bats, I use Sakura's Gelly Roll Stardust. This pen adds a subtle clear glitter to anything. I love this pen.
Feel free to leave me a comment or ask any questions. It's my pleasure to answer them!
