I am also in the process of trying out a new technique that I spotted over on Splitcoast and also on Karen B. Barber's blog ( I will find her link to her blog for you all and will post it), the technique is called "Black Magic". What an amazingly beautiful technique, and it is one of those "oh I gotta try that" kind of techniques and it is one that looks harder to do than it actually is. Gotta love that kind of project too :)! So here is my first attempt at the "Black Magic" technique, and I have to say that I didn't use metallic colored pencils for this technique which other's have been using. I used my prisma colored pencils, but you do have to press kind of hard to make sure you get the nice deep colors :D...let me know what you think??
