Black Magic Awash with Flowers

The Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast this week was to try Black magic- using white craft ink onto black or some other dark cardstock you stamp some solid image, heat set it then color it in- I used watercolor pencils here but you could use pure color pencils as well. After I colored it in with variety of colors, I used the signo gel pen to highlight the area. to make it pop some. The sentiment was from watercolor trio set. I punched out an oval and used the negative as an outline to go around the sentiment. I cut a slit on the sides of the sentiment to slide in a 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon and a real easy card- seriously, it took less than 10 minutes to make this card, if you can believe it- no layering, nothing. Have a try at it!
