Sandra Heck made this card at Technique Thursday!

This is a new technique called BLACK MAGIC we learned that is super addictive as Wendy Wexler and Jan Tink will tell you.
***This card was inspired by the two unaward winning Artisan bloggers.
However, I must say they are both winners in my book. I think more important than winning an Artisan award is al the ppl they inspire and help grow their business by their fabulous posts.

This card base is the scallop clear square cut where it makes a card base.
this card uses the same technique except coloring the white craft ink with color pencils you use pastels.
Becky and Sandra are filling in their technique books and putting on their final touches.
