A little black magic for Can You Case It Challenge

Hi, Stampers,

Many years ago, Frank Sinatra sang a song with these lyrics:

"That old black magic has me in its spell
That old black magic that you weave so well
Those icy fingers up and down my spine
The same old witchcraft when your eyes meet mine"

The lyrics go on from there.  You're probably wondering what this has to do with my card for today.  It's because I used the Black Magic Technique to make my card. Here's is my magical card:

And here's the banner from Can You Case It #115


My card only uses the three colors above plus a little white thrown in for contrast.

The black magic technique is very easy to do.  You stamp your images onto black cardstock using Whisper White CRAFT ink.  Set it aside to dry or use a heat tool if you are impatient like me. Next, you color over the white ink with colored pencils. To complete the technique you highlight parts of the card with a white gel pen.  That's it!

The sentiment from the Wetlands stamp set is stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  I die cut the sentiment and the Cherry Cobbler piece of cardstock behind it with the Tags and Labels Framelets and adhered it to my card with Fast Fuze. I finished my card with a white ribbon bow and one of the Botanical Garden Jewels Embellishments.

Wave your magic wand and give this technique a try!
