Black Magic Lion

No, I am not losing my mind and I do not believe in Black Magic. But that is what the technique is called that I used on my project today. The concept is to stamp your image in white ink onto black or dark cardstock and color in with colored pencils using Odorless Mineral Spirits. I didn't have the OMS so I used Goo Gone which was mentioned as an alternative for this Splitcoast Challenge.

I used another great new set from Our Daily Bread Designs. Isn't it a beautiful drawing of a lion and lamb? Looking at the image I envisioned it in a half circle so that is where I started. This card gave me many struggles along the way. Not exactly excited with the end result, but I am posting it nonetheless.
Thank you for visiting. I'll be back!
