Black Magic

Good morning sweet friends-
Oh what a week...what a week!!
I'm actually getting caught up on some projects and I need to because, we have just decided to MOVE!
How I dislike moving...I LOVE to organize, but moving is awful!!
So this will all be taking place the first of December, so I am trying hard to work ahead.

Moving on...
Today at SweetStamps we have a fun technique for you to try.
This weeks theme is:
Here is my card sample.

This technique is new to me and I LOVE it. 
I stamped my image using white pigment ink, onto black cardstock. 
Now here is the fun part...You can color the white space with either chalks, copics or colored pencils. 
I used Prismacolor pencils on my card.  I also learned through the process that it is best to use an image that is not so detailed, it's really hard to color with color pencils.

So there you have it...I hope that you will take the challenge and join us this week. 
Make sure to stop by the blog too and see what the other sweeties have created.
