Black Magic

Sarah introduced me to the Black Magic technique (stamp in white on dark cardstock and add colour using coloured pencils) and I was an instant fan. It is a lot of fun to do Black Magic cards and it is a very different look than when you stamp and colour on a light cardstock.

For my first Black Magic card I used one of my all time favourite Papetrey Ink stamp sets, Stitches and Swirls. I stamped the flowers using Hero Arts’ Unicorn white pigment ink and let the image dry really well before colouring the leaves and flowers using my PrismaColor pencils. For this card I coloured directly onto the black cardstock which is doable because PrismaColor pencils are wax-based.

For my second card I started by stamping and heat embossing the sentiment before I stamped the images using Clearly Besotted’s Dandelion Dreams. When stamping the stems of the dandelions I masked off parts of the flowers as well as the sentiments whereby I achieved some sense of depth in the stamping.

Here I coloured directly onto the stamped part of the card which gives a slightly different Black Magic effect than what I did on the first card. It only goes to show that Black Magic is a technique with many possibilities. I strongly encourage you to give the technique a whirl.
