Hand Stamped Sentiments - Black Magic

Good Morning Stampers!

I am excited about our Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge this week since I am the hostess.  I came up with a great technique called Black Magic.











 I had a lot of fun with this technique.  I also added a twist by using a white gel pen.  The first time I saw this was done by Karen Barber.  I loved it and pulled out my Inspired by Nature set again to do the technique with a twist.  Here is what I created.

I hope you will play along with us.  Head on over to the Hand Stamped Sentiments blog to check out what the other members of the team created.  Then make your sample and link it up on our post.  Thanks for looking and have a Terrific Tuesday!

Robbie, I've always LOVED that stamp set (still have it too!) it's PERFECT for this challenge and great job with adding a twist, adds a bit more dimension and the allure of shading. Great card!
