I had decided to use the Black Magic Technique from Gina’s video here http://stamptv.ning.com/video/black-magic-coloring-technique. Then I thought, I wonder what would happen if I combined it with Melanie’s most recent video featuring the recessed and raised technique http://stamptv.ning.com/video/recessed-and-raised-bouquet-cards-with-pressed-flowers-2 Since I didn’t order the dies that go with Pressed Flowers 2, I had to improvise. I used the smallest dahlia from Dazzling Dahlias. Since there was only one die, I had to cut it three times, so I didn’t save any time there. I used GKD white ink for the flowers. Stamping the dahlia in the recessed negative piece was a challenge in itself. I used two sizes of Matting Basics for Claire’s method of creating a frame, thus saving the inner piece of cardstock for another use. This helped a bit in positioned the stamp inside the negative cuts. I used Prisma pencils Process Red, Pink, Grass Green and Apple Green. The sentiment is from Fabulous Flowers. This turned out way better than I anticipated and I’m very excited and pleased with the results.
