Blendabilities Black Magic

Have you ever done the Black Magic technique?  It usually involves stamping the image with white ink and then coloring the white ink with colored pencils.  This one I did a bit differently.  I stamped with the image and embossed it with white embossing powder.  Then I colored the white with my Blendabilities.  I think it turned out pretty.  I did notice that I could see my brush strokes, so I had to be mindful of how I was coloring.  The card below was my first one and I think it didn’t turn out as well because I was doing circular brush strokes which were very noticeable.  I also didn’t get my colors blended as well as I would have liked.  Practice makes perfect (or at least better!) so I was happier with the outcome of the other card.  It was fun to color my pearls and rhinestones with the Blendabilities too!    
**The stamp has lots of dots on the background and I didn’t want those to show.  Rather than trying to just ink up the flowers, I decided to “cover” up the dots with my black Copic marker.  It seems like it would be tedious, but it took almost no time and I like how it turned out.  You can see a hint of the white under some, but it just adds some extra interest to the card.IMG_0382
