It’s a little corny, but I read Black Magic and I thought of Halloween. So I pulled out my current Halloween set and got to work. If you don’t know what the Black Magic technique is, it is really easy. Stamp your image on black or really dark cardstock in Whisper White or Very Vanilla Craft ink. Then used colored pencils, or in my case Stampin’ Up!’s retired metallic pencils and color over it. I then highlighted the effect even more by tracing around the images with a white gel pen. Pretty funky huh? I still think it looks really neat despite the funky feel.
Well I have a lot to get done today and I have another Stampin’ Up! order coming in. My mom, sister and I share stamps. So I better make sure theirs work when they arrive? I think Inspired by Nature will be one of the firsts on that list.
