This technique calls for a white stamp on black paper and then watercolor pencils for the bright detail. Inspired by Wendy Weixler (SCS) in her tutorial "Black Magic." I deliberately "stamped off" the black paper to control the size of the center section of the card. Then I stamped in black on a strip of paper lined it up, and punched the border where I wanted it Stamping off added some interest to this design which wasn't as bright as Wendy's technique demonstrated. The sentiment is from Close to My Heart stampset #1310 (Happiness). The border is a Martha Stewart lace scalloped edge punch sponged with SU yo-yo yellow. The black mat on the base is embossed with Cuttlebug Musical Flourish EF. I can't wait to try this one again. It was fun, and I think I could get more dramatic results with a less detailed stamp.
