I got this technique from Jennifer McGuire and thought I would try it out this week. It was super fun and easy to do. It makes your image look almost like it was hand drawn.
This technique looks best done on a piece of dark cardstock. You will need white pigment ink and a white Prismacolor pencil, and a stamp that is an outline type of stamp. I chose one of the new Magenta stamps 14.650.P Iceland Poppy.
Stamp your image using white pigment ink. I used Hero Arts White Unicorn ink.
Let your stamped image dry, or heatset it to dry it.
Start coloring with a white Prismacolor pencil on all of the stamped lines to soften them, and shade into the image. Be sure to leave some of the background color of the cardstock so that it shows through.
If any of your stamped lines get too covered up, draw them in a little darker with the white pencil.
To finish the card, I stamped a sentiment (Magenta 07.928.I With Sympathy) in Versamark ink and embossed it with JudiKins White Opaque embossing powder. I added some white dots to the center of the flowers using Imagine Crafts' Pico Embellisher in Wedding Dress. A few sequins were added, and I matted the panel with black So Silk.
This card was really fun and easy to do, and I hope you will give it a try.
