Today I am playing along with  The Paper Players challenge #159. Below is my card for the challenge. I chose the "Black Magic" technique for my card. The more I try this technique the more I fall in love with it. It's basically stamping your image in WHITE ink onto BLACK cs. Then when the ink dries you use your color pencils to color the image. Then you come back with a white Signo Gel pen and highlight. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeazy!

For my card I chose Close to My Heart's Treasures stamp set. I used the largest dandelion flower and the straight stem along side of the sentiment stamp in the collection. The butterfly is from Stampin' Up! Best of Butterflies which is one of their anniversary stamp sets. I colored with my PrismaColor Pencils. I invested in their 132 ct pencil set and I just adore coloring with them. They work perfectly for this technique. 
Go ahead and give the "Black Magic" a try. I know you will love it as much as I.

Here's the challenge at The Paper Players this week.

Beautiful card! I LOVE how vibrant the Prismacolor pencils are on black and the white details really make your card pop.
