We got to experiment with the "Black Magic" technique this week. This photo is not the one that we did in class but one that I played with after classes had finished. This is sadly one of the retiring stamp sets so I wanted to do something with it one last time.
The photo doesn't do the colours justice but I am limited to what my camera can do and my photo taking skills - not sure which is the most deficiant.
What I used:
Stamp Set: Kindred Spirits, Trendy Trees
Ink: Craft White, Watercolor Pencils
Card: Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black
Ribbon: Rich Razzleberry
Punches: Word Window, Large Oval, Scallop Oval
The second card we did uses my all time favourite stamp set which very sadly is retiring from the Catalogue but I will not be parting with mine. I also used Vellum which I don't use very often but when I do I remember what an effective look it creates. It is a great way of softening bright colours or adding style to a formal card.
Stamp Set: A Rose Is A Rose, Heard From The Heart
Card: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black
Ribbon: Riding Hood Red Satin Ribbon
