Here is my project using the new stamp set 

I went with a technique I have been wanting to try for quite some time now called
'Black Magic'.
There are many different tutorials on YouTube and Split Coast Stampers
using various mediums to color with, but I chose Copics.

I started by die cutting a panel using Tonic Garden Trellis Garden set
from black card stock.

I added a piece of  'Sticker Paper' under the lattice part of the die cut.
then sprinkling Lemonade glitter all over that.
I used the Glitter Brush to clean all the excess glitter of the black card stock.

I used the Anti-Static Bag to first to 'clean' my paper so as not to have any smudges of
embossing powder where I didn't want it.
The image was stamped with Versamark,
then embossed with White Fine detail embossing powder.

Next comes the fun part, coloring on your image with copics....
on this technique, you actually color ON the embossing,
giving bright and pretty details.

I then used  Tear-ificTape ½”  to adhere the finished panel to my
glittered lattice card base.  A poppy red panel was added under that
and a ribbon bow!

Next on the hop is our very talented CHRIS.....
make sure and visit ALL the designers and leave a comment for your chance
to win the entire release!

Stampin' Royalty .... Favorite Technique (Black Magic) (3/12)
