I Brake for Black Magic Peacocks

Hi everybody!

I did some Copic coloring on this week's card and it was so easy!  You can't mess up and it looks like you drew and colored the image by hand.  This technique is called Black Magic.  I used a stamp from I Brake For Stamps called Large and Beautiful Peacock for this technique.  I have used peacock feathers before on cards but I have never colored an entire peacock.  It was a lot of fun!

All you do is stamp the peacock with embossing ink such as Versamark on black card stock and emboss with white powder. Then color over the white lines.  You may have to go over some colors a couple of times.  How easy is that!  Another alternative is that you can stamp the image with white pigment ink and heat set. Then color in the image with colored pencils. 

I then used a Sharpie white paint pen to draw lines around the edge to break up the black some and added a few sequins. I also added a sheer black ribbon for some interest.

Did I inspire you to try the Black Magic technique?  Try it using this Peacock stamp.  This will make a beautiful birthday card for the person I'm sending it to.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
