Black Magic Technique

I was playing with this technique some time ago……and I’d forgotten how effective it was to simply stamp in Whisper White Ink, let it dry and then colour with Stampin’ Up!’s Water Colour Pencils.

You can create this effect with any dark coloured cardstock e.g. Night of Navy, Fresh Fig, Early Espresso…….just stamp a bold image in Whisper White Ink and gently colour using the Water Colour Pencils. The highlights are done with a Chalk Marker.


Here’s what I’ve used to create the cards above :
