It's that Ol' Black Magic...

..hmmm...I think I'm humming that post title to the song of "That ol' devil moon, in your eye...." from Finian's Rainbow....oh - you didn't know I was a theater freak? Just another of my endearing qualities...just ask my daughter! LOL Did you know there is a song for everything? And that I usually sing it and "someone we know" gets EMBARRASSED??? LOL Remind me to tell you the story of HOW I got Stef to not say out loud that she was embarrassed by me....LOL She laughs about it now, then not so much!!

OK - onto that Ol' Black Magic....

I demonstrated this at our workshop the other evening...it was too much to do in our time frame as a make and take. However, I had a great group of gals over at Eileen's house that were already versed in the card craft, and wanted to throw in a WOW they could do themselves....this card was inspired by the colors in a card by Leonie Schroder.....



Recipe:
Stamps: Canvas BG, Fabulous Flowers, All Holidays

Paper: Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue, Whisper White

Ink: White Craft, Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue

Access: SU Watercolor Pencils, White Gel Pen, Ticket Corner Punch, 1/16 circle hand held punch, silver brads, black gingham ribbon, dimensionals

EASY!!! Just stamp your image onto black paper with the white craft ink - LET DRY (key) - or help it along with your heat gun if you are impatient like me ;-) Then when dry color with your pencils...I used the light blue and medium blue watercolor pencils. I decided which way the sun was hitting my flower and put the dark at the bottom of the petals where I thought there should be shadow...I meant to only put the white gel pen around the top part - but I boo-booed and so the whole she-bang got white gel pen...still looks good though....REMEMBER.....THERE ARE NO MISTAKES IN STAMPING - ONLY CREATIVE DIFFERENCES! So I creatively made this one different than I wanted!! LOL Then - you just mount the piece however you want, and AWAY you go!!! ENJOY!

Cracking up, Reen....my motto is "Everything is a song" which now comes out of my daughters' mouths, too. I do the same weird thing you do!

Your card is just stunning with the black background!!

Have a great day!
