GINAKSC123 - I am here for you


Gina K issued a sketch challenge on her blog a few Fridays ago so I figured I would play-I didn't win but I was sure pleased with the outcome of my card!

As I was reading my frequented blogs, Andrea Walford reminded me of the black magic technique. You stamp a solid image (not usually my favorite) in craft ink on black cardstock and pencil over with metallic pencils. Well, I am not crazy about the colors in that set so I decided to try it with my Koh-i-Noor pencils (more variety) and sure enough I loved the results because you can layer your colors. So I went about stamping a 1/2 sheet of cardstock to make my own dp and went ahead with my card.

Stamps: Comfort & Peace by Gina K Designs
Cardstock: Green Galore, Regal Rose, Basic Black
Ink: Craft White, Palette Noir Black
Accessories: Regal wide grosgrain ribbon, coluzzle, scallop scissors, gold brads, paper piercing tool.
