Yesterday I made a card for the Ways to Use It challenge which was to use Metal. Fresh out of metal, other than brads, I turned to Aluminum Foil, the Beautiful Wings embosslit and the BS. This is what I created!
I wished I had used larger butterflies (Foilflies) on yesterdays card so I decided to create another one. I used a stamp from Beautiful Borders for the Black Magic technique and just added my foilflies.
Hope you like it! Let me know what you think!! TFL

This is a beautiful card. I don't do much stamping on black, but I may be doing more now that I've seen this one. My sister loves butterflies - but they have to be special ones, and this sure fits the bill. I think I'll make one of these for her - but instead of using the foilies, I'll do the butterflies in the same technique you used on the trim. Thanks for the inspiration!

This is the prettiest black magic! Your colors are brilliant and your foil flies are beautiful.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia

I love it! This is BEAUTIFUL! I love the black! and your black magic really pops! What kind of colored pencils did you use? It almost looks like you used markers - but I'm not sure you can do black magic with markers?
JUST LOVELY - and love the butterflies ;)
