S&S sketch challenge#18

Here is this week's sketch from OWH's Stars and Stamps blog. Kate created a fun, interesting sketch. Thanks Kate! I went for a folk art look on this card. The houses are a stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms. The sentiment is an Anna Griffin design. On both cards I used the Black Magic technique which is this week's Try a New Technique challenge on Split Coast Stampers. I had never done it before and loved it!

I did color with white Prismacolor pencil directly on the red paper for the stars and stripes. The flag is an oldie from Stampendous. The cancellation stamps by an unknown maker.

These are both very nice cards. I especially like the patriotic interpretation and how you used the stars instead of squares.

While both cards are really gorgeous, I love the first one. I am going to check out the Black Magic technique. Thanks for playing!
