Had fun with the Technique Lover’s Challenge (TLC389) on Splitcoast. Wow! I didn’t realize we had so many bg tech in the resource section that I haven’t tried! So I did a new one (for me) on two of the bookmarks: pastels on black. Since my images are smaller, I did just a bit inside the stamped white lines.
The images are all from Our Daily Bread designs. On the largest bookmark, since it’s entirely a silhouette, I did it a little differently:Brilliance moonlight white under black ink and no pastel pencils. I first die cut the bookmark and leaving the die in place, I sponged the Brillance ink all over the inside. I place a little reverse circle mask and sponged more white ink for the moon. Then the silhouette bookmark image was stamped in the black ink on top. A few highlights were added w/ a white gel pen.
I used a fourth bookmark to make my pocket on the card front to hold the other bookmarks and attached the sides w/ some mini brads to the embossed background. The card is 4.25 x 5.50.

What an interesting color challenge (CC307) at Splitcoast! I wasn’t sure I’d like these colors, but they’re growing on me. I wanted to use a purple c/s, but I don’t have eggplant, so I used the black and layered it w/ lavender. I used the eggplant, suede, red and a little green (for some reason I had it in my head that artichoke was one of the colors) for the colors in my butterflies.
All images are Our Daily Bread designs. For my bg, I stamped the lg butterfly bg image w/ the white chalk ink and did what I think is close to the Black Magic tech. I actually learned this tech around 1999 or 2000 in a class I took from Helene Metievier (from Magenta Rubber Stamps). I don’t think it had a name then and Helene used pigment ink, but the chalk works just fine and it dries much faster.
After I stamped the bg, I used the Prismacolor pencils to color over the solid white images. It may look like I made a lot of layers of this bg, but it was actually only one 5.25 x 4 pc. I cut it into 2 frames w/ lavender layers in between. On both of the layers, I made a faux layer by drawing a frame w/ a white marker.
The large butterfly was stamped on white w/ black ink, colored w/ the Prismas and die cut using the matching ODBD butterfly die. The sentiment was stamped on the lavender and die cut w/ a Spellbinders diamond shape. A few curled strips were added for the butterfly tail.

What a great couple of challenges yesterday and today at SCS! Yesterday was the Black Magic technique. Actually, I started playing around with technique last week, but only finished it today. I’ve had this great image from Stamp Camp since a convention here this spring, but this is the first time I’ve used it.
The image was stamped on black using white pigment ink and heat set. Then I used Prismacolor pencils to shade and blend the colors on the hillside. I used a white gel pen to further highlight the outlines. The greenish panel was bugged using the new forest branches folder. For the shimmery black panel, I sprayed a piece of black cardstock with a pearl finish spray paint. It didn’t add color, just the shimmery, metallic finish.
Well, the news is out! I was selected to be a Design Team member for FireCracker Designs by Pamela. And, Pamela has four brand NEWplates of terrific images just released for preorder today! Y’all be sure to stop by and tell her I sent you.
