Chalkboard Tutorial/Black Velvet Poster Art

Here is a quick and fun tutorial.  
The result is a chalkboard like or those fuzzy black posters that you color with markers.

Using Embossing Ink, I took MFP stamp set Dino News Stamp Set 
 Stamped the image onto black cards stock. 
 Using Prismacolor pencils and a blending medium, dip your pencil into the medium and color your image. It provides a smooth, smooth blending pencil and wow image. Is it chalk or is it marker?
 Here is the pencils and blending medium.  I just put a little bit in the lid and used it.  I probably should have used something else but it worked.   Like my can of pencils. I try all different things to hold my pencils and keep coming back to an old can!
 Here are couple of examples, using the pencils and blending medium...

Here is my completed card:
