Thank You-Black Magic FM 145

February 2, 2014

Today is Groundhog's Day and Super Bowl Sunday!  I am excited to watch the game and the commercials.  I will be cheering for Peyton!

I have had a lot of time to visit blogs and watch tutorials on card making techniques since my knee replacement surgery.  I found a technique on Splitcoast Stampers that I have never heard of or rarely seen used.  It is called Black Magic.  I thought I would give it a try.  It reminds me of those Black Tole Trays you see in antique stores.  I always found them interesting.  I am adding the link if you are interested in learning this technique.  ENJOY!  Thank you to Wendy Weixler for sharing this tutorial!   

                                    I am using the sketch challenge from The Friday Mashup for my card!  I love this sketch and I will use it again!  You could mash it up with some sponging and I did sponge a little white ink around the flower.
