Technique – Black Magic with Colorful Seasons and Touches of Texture

At a recent class, we used black cardstock and Watercolor Pencils to create beautiful cards using the Black Magic Technique.

Card 1:

This is the one that participants made during the class.

Tips:

  • A Craft White ink pad is required for this technique.
  • Solid images with matching outline stamps create the best results.
  • Stamp the solid images with Craft white ink on black cardstock. Allow to dry naturally or speed up the process with a heat tool.
  • Colour the images with Watercolour Pencils, blending colours together as required with a Blender Pen.
  • Stamp the matching outline images with the Craft white ink.
  • Create card as desired.
  • Supplies on this sample:
    • Cardstock: Thick Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay
    • Ink: Whisper White Craft, Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, Sahara Sand
    • Stamps: Touches of Texture, Eastern Beauty
    • Accessories: Watercolor Pencils, Layering Ovals Framelits, Burlap Ribbon, Dimensionals
