I love these! The background remins me of an old fashioned chalkboard. Beautiful.

Beautiful and striking on black. Didn’t even know black MM even existed. I have black watercolor paper which I have yet to use.

Wow, you make me want to get out my black MM paper, Christine. I love all your stamping and heat embossing. I am off to check out your details on Magenta. Stay Safe and Creative, my friend. Love and Hugs...Nancy

Beautiful cards Christine. I haven't had time to play with the black mixed media paper yet, so I'm learning lots through you! :) I love mix of colours you've used on top of the black ... so pretty! Waiting for my speckled egg inks to arrive ... hopefully soon! xx

Nstiz said...

Wow do I love the effect of white ink on black! It’s quite powerful and I never guessed the watercoloring would show up so well! I definitely will get some black mixed media paper. How fun. Your backgrounds again are spectacular with that wonderful mix of stamps.

And another amazing card! They are full of movement and designs. I love how you used the black background.

Wow, I LOVE the fabulous watercolored and splattered black MM background, Christine! The white heat-embossed flowers beautifully pop.
The white ink and clear heat-embossed mandalas and script are also beautiful! They have a soft impression and give a dreamy feeling. Very different look from the first card. Both cards are awesome!
