Friend

As you can probably tell, I've had a fun weekend working in my studio. This card was created for the challenges at SweetStamps which was Black Magic, a technique, and for City Crafters which was 3 + 1 = Cute (to use 3 pattern papers and 1 solid cardstock on our card).
My image was done using the Black Magic technique. The SweetStamps blog describes the technique in detail. To sum up what I did, I stamped the SweetStamp image in Versamark on solid black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder. I colored the white lines with Copics. The end result is quite striking in real life. I added a black bow and a stenciled sentiment.
My background was done using the colleged circles background (Technique Junkies (Aug/Sep 2011). My circles were made from three different printed designer papers.
