Gina K. Designs -- Black Magic Daisy

I couldn't wait to ink up my new stamps by Asela Hopkins for Gina K Designs! I used the large single daisy for this card and tried it with the Black Magic Technique (TLC184) posted today on Splitcoast. You can find the link here. It's a very simple technique. First, you stamp your image in white or vanilla craft ink. Then color with Prismacolor pencils which have been dipped first in odorless mineral spirits (Gamsol). My DH says my image reminds him of those black velvet painting you use to see! What do you think? Other supplies used: Stamps-Flowers for Daisy by Asela Hopkins for Gina K. Designs and Tag, You're It! by Gina K. Designs; Ink: SU! craft white & Versafine onyx black; Paper: SU! purely pomegranate, basic black, PTI - white, Paper Pizazz - dotted vellum; Accessories: SU! dazzling diamonds, JoAnn ribbon, MS border punch, SU! circle punch, Marvy scalloped oval punch, Nestabilities embossed oval die, Stampendous diamond dots, Zots and foam tape.
