Black Magic Day~

Today I created a project…YEP- I actually got to stamp!! I wish I could have taken a pic to show you how it took place… try and envision, me- on one leg (like a flamingo) with my injured right leg straight out prop up on a bar stool.  It worked great for about 30 min… till my left butt cheek and leg started to fatigue… so then I look down and my foot is bigger than it has been the entire time. So much for stamping…
So since I worked so hard, I am dying to show you what I made-
 I used the technique for this weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments Tech. Challenge #114- Black magic!!  I had never tried this before and had to watch a tutorial or two to understand it, but seriously it is so pretty and really gives an impact!! I love the POP of color in the black card stock!!
I stamped the Hello Doily background stamp onto black card stock with Craft White Ink, then I took my water color pencils and colored in the image where the white ink is.  This is a perfect way for you to add color to a dark color background- SUPER COOL!!
