Black magic challenge



The challenge at Just Add Ink this week is a colour challenge.

You needed to use bashful blue, sahara sand, blushing bride and pear pizzazz.

These colours do look very pretty together and it’s great to be challenged to use different colour combinations.

Watercolour pencils are not exact Stampin’ Up colours but the green I used for the swirly leaves is extremely close to the pear pizzazz colour.

There was also a great sketch challenge at Stamping411 this week and I decided to combine the two. So it is a double challenge with a black magic twist.

I still didn’t challenge myself to do the black magic technique on something other than a flower BUT I thought I had enough challenges for one day!
