It's been awhile since I'ved done the chalkboard technique but I saw something this past week on a blog post that reminded me of this fun technique. I stamped the tree in Whisper White craft ink on Basic Black cardstock. I let it sit for just a few minutes so it wouldn't smear and then colored over the white ink with the Watercolor Pencils. Love the effect it gives. Order your supplies here.
