Day 1 - GIU girl - Black Magic w/video

Black Magic technique
I'm happy to be a Growing in Unity (GIU) girl this week.  All week I will be sharing my love of stamping featuring Unity stamps.  Please comment each day because at the end of the week I will be picking two winners from all the comments posted. Please leave a current email in comment so I can contact you if you win.  The prize is a grab bag of stamps from Unity stamp co..
The Black Magic technique has been around for years but I've just added brown and blue to the technique.  I like to use Prisma color pencils for this technique plus I changed it up just a little by doing it on different color cardstocks.  Basically you stamp the images with white pigment ink then color on top of the white pigment (after it is dry) ink with color pencils.

  4. I love how you used an older technique because sometimes we forget just how great they can be. All of them are wonderful and I really like the monochromatic blue one.

  23. I love that you have added a new set of colors to the technique...I am seeing green with a large red poinsettia in my near future...or maybe a nice orange pumpkin on that beautiful brown you used with Fall leaves all around. Thanks for sharing. shawsos@cox.net
