It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge. This week we're having a "Sketch Pad" challenge.
I really like this week's sketch. I can see myself using it over and over. Check out what I came up with below:
Flourishing Phrases Sketch card:
- Fold 11" x 4-1/4" Basic Black cardstock for the card base
- Adhere 2-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece of Old Olive cardstock to card front, then adhere 3" x 4-7/8" piece of Real Red cardstock.
- On 4-1/4" x 2-3/4" Basic Black cardstock, stamp & color image (follow Black Magic with a Twist instructions below). Adhere to card.
- Stamp greeting with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap of Old Olive cardstock. Die cut with Layering Oval Framelits Dies and adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I know you want to know how to do this fun technique using Whisper White Craft ink and the Watercolor Pencils. Here's how...
Black Magic with a Twist Technique
- Stamp image (Flourishing Phrases) with Whisper White Craft ink on 4-1/4" x 2-3/4" Basic Black cardstock. Let dry.
- Color image with Watercolor Pencils
- stems and leaves = Old Olive
- flowers = Pumpkin pie
- flower accents/details & circle flowers = real red
- You could stop here or add a twist
- For the "twist", use White Stampin' Chalk Marker to add the white dots (the "twist" of the dots really make the image pop!)
Black Magic is cool technique that is an oldie but goodie. I've got several more samples to share with you in the coming weeks. Some of them with a "surprise twist"!
