Of the Earth Black Magic Card
Hi Stampers! Today I fiddled around with the "Black Magic Technique". Black magic is simply stamping your image in white craft ink on black cardstock. Then coloring your image with shimmery water color pencils (Stampin Up Watercolor Pencils worked perfectly). I understand that it requires you to use a white gel pen for accent on your image. I didn't do that...LOL I decided to add my white as faux stitching instead. That probably doesn't count!!!! hehe But that's what I wanted to do, so I guess I morphed the technique a bit.
Give it a try & add your own little twist to it, too. I think that's half the fun of stamping. I can tweek any technique or procedure to suit my own tastes. 100 people can stamp the same image and they will all look different...such fun!!
Have you been enjoying the Olympics? I am really enjoying them this year and I can root for both the USA and Canada and not show any favortism!! hehe Keeps me busy rooting for the two teams. LOL It has been fun, I must admit. I have such respect for the Athletes!!! I get tired just watching them!!
I hope you'll take a minute and leave me a comment. I love to hear what you have to say. Take care everyone and happy stampin!!!
