Papertrey Ink Blog Hop: Black Backgrounds
Friday, January 25, 2013
Hello and thanks for stopping by for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! I was really pumped about this hop when I saw the post about using Black Backgrounds and seeing all the gorgeous samples Nichole Heady posted on her blog. I made it a point to MAKE TIME to create a project for this. Sometimes we just have to do that, or we'll never get to it, right?!
So here it is, my take on a technique called Black Magic. I watched this video, and it really is super easy. All it really is is stamping with White craft ink on black cardstock, and once dried, just color in with colored pencils! I used one element from the Mat Stack 5 Collection to create the frame shape. The center flower is stamped in White ink on black cardstock and popped up using foam tape. For added interest, I added small dots of Liquid Pearls to the stamped images. The ribbon is the PTI silk ribbon (sorry for the horrid photo....not sure why the white is so washed out!).
