Black Magic/Chalkboard

At SweetStamps blog today our theme is Black Magic/Chalkboard.  Please join us for a chance to win $20.00 in FREE stamps by entering your Black Magic/Chalkboard creation in our challenge.  If you enter using a SweetStamps stamp you will be entered twice in the drawing.


Use white dye ink or white EP, then color over the white areas. Here are two splitcoast tutorials: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/blackmagic/ and http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/chalkboard_technique/



Background paper is Bo Bunny Country Garden.  I stamped the 4003 Bold Blooms Tall Corner stamp from SweetStamps.com on black card stock using Distress Embossing Ink and heat embossed it with Fine Detail White EP.  Pitt Pens were used over the embossing to add color.  I used the same technique on the one of the butterflies from the S600 Fanciful Butterflies set.  Delicata Golden Glitz ink applied with a course pouncer on the black card stock for added color.  Black photo corners were used to attach the colored piece to the background paper.  To finish the card I added pearls and used Krylon Adhesive Spray to attach the 98256 Pepita Border from Memory Box.




I hope you enjoyed this weeks blog challenge at SweetStamps.com, please join us next week when our challenge will be Christmas.
