Black Magic Technique

Several months ago I was asked by Beate Johns over on Splitcoaststampers if I would be willing to do a tutorial for the Resources forum on this technique. No problemo ...

So here we are, several months later, and this is the card I created for the tutorial. You can see the step-by-step photos and instructions here:

And here (again!) is the video tutorial I posted on youtube waayyy back in the day when I first started playing with this technique (thanks to my genius-friend, Karen Barber!):



Stamps: Style Beautiful, Friends Never Fade
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Whisper White, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Folder, Mini Clip from Mini Clips Assortment, Wide Oval Punch, Dimensionals

I love this! I tried it and love the results- except that I need to get a decent white pen. What is your favorite kind?
Have a great day!
