When Black really isn't Just BLACK!

I'm back with another card with my
Screamin' Banshee Black Magicals and the result I got
with this card really surprised me.
I did warn you there would be more Black Magic!
How cool are the colours it created here!


It's for the current CAS Mix Up Challenge



I love these challenges as I get to try out
different Mixed Media Techniques every month.
Some I have done before and others -
it's a whole new experience.
I saw this technique on You Tube not long ago
and loved it, just hadn't had a chance to try it
so here it is!
I chose my Dusty Attic Stencil called Webbing
placing it down on my craft mat then
sprinkled that black magic onto it,
 spritzed with water then turned it over
onto water colour paper. WOW!
I then looked at it and decided to cut it
around part of the print leaving
enough white space  for my card base.
I then cut  my Tall Flower die from Simply Dies
from leftovers (Tim's Oxide Inks)
 as it blended nicely with the background.
My sentiment is from Gina K Designs
in Memento London Fog.

My Mix is - Stenciled Monoprint, Stamping
and Die Cutting.

Thanks for dropping in
Till next time - Cherrio from

Great colours from the 'black magic powder' Ina and such a unique and creative effect. I know you enjoy techniques and it sure does show with this stunning card. The oxides on the die cut complement that glorious background really well and the stencil is fabulous. Thank you for joining in the fun challenge at The CAS Mix UP Challenge x.

I am in awe, Ina. Those Magicals are so . . well yes, I'll say it - magical. The cut of the stencil and then the shape you used adds such wonderful interest to your card and the little pot of flowers is the perfect final touch.
