Black Magic Thinking of You

I tried this tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers called Black Magic. It's where you stamp an image with white pigment ink onto black cardstock and either let it dry or dry it with a heat tool. Once it's dry color in the image with colored pencils. I tried 3 different kinds of colored pencils and thought the Stampin Up watercolor pencils worked better than Crayola or Farber Castell colored pencils. This flower stamp is by SEI. I did this technique with a filled in stamp but it also works on outlined stamps.

The sentiment is a Cricut die cut and all the black cardstock is by Recollections. The background is a stamp by Hero Arts that I stamped with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with Ranger's red embossing powder onto Ranger's watercolor paper. Then I came in with red distress ink to cover the whole piece of embossed paper. After the whole piece was red I sprayed the cardstock with water mixed with Perfect Pearls by Ranger.

**And don't forget about the birthday giveaway. It ends November 29th at noon EST.**

Thanks for looking.
