Technique Tuesday: Black Magic

Have you ever seen a velvet Elvis painting?

The colors seem to glow against the black fuzzy background. I just learned those paintings originated in Kashmir.

You can re-create that technique on a scrapbook layout or card with supplies you may already have.

Stamp your images on black cardstock in white ink. Let the ink dry. Color them with colored pencils. Outline some of the images with the white gel pen. snowtime4

I made this layout with my Girl Scout troop as part of a project. It went well with a snow theme, especially because I had a photo of my daughter as a toddler standing in the first snow of that season in the dark.

Watch a tutorial on this at Splitcoast Stampers then come back to order your supplies.
