Brightly coloured Wings

Having seen a few peoples examples of black magic technique, I decided I ought to have a go myself. Here is my first attempt.
Black Magic technique is where you stamp the image in white ink and then colour over the top in coloured pencils. This chocolate baroque stamp (bought back in the days of Graphicus), was a bit of a fiddly stamp to choose, but I found it very therapeutic! I dusted a little bit of white ink around the edges too.  The background paper was a freebie from a magazine, and as I had a multicoloured owl I thought I would have some multicoloured leaves as well! A punched border, some die cut leaves and a bit of faux stitching finished it off.
I am entering this card into these challenges:
It is half term and I have spent most of the day up in the loft with hubby, sorting out after our new roof a few months ago. It was very dusty up there and we managed to shift about half the contents, either to the tip or to a friend with a nine month old baby (things like the fire guard, playpen and stair gate, and lots of toys!)  I am now well and truly ready for a good shower and hair wash!
Thanks for looking and for taking the time to leave a comment.

  2. This is gorgeous Sally. The owl looks very majestic against the brightly coloured background which is a perfect foil for him.
    Great technique.

  3. Fabulous! Gorgeous owl, love the BP too. Must try that technique.

    Had to smile at the thought of you up in the loft covered in dust! Just what we did before we moved house. Yes, I think Meg probably doesn't need the playpen and stairgate any more now! x
