Handmade floral card made on black cardstock with StazOn Pigment ink in Snowflake, Mariner Blue and Peacock Feathers

Stunning Floral Card on Black Paper

I used the new StazOn Pigment inks to create this stenciled floral background. I love the way StazOn Pigment Ink looks on dark/black card stock. This is a very easy and simple card to make because the ink is so vibrant. I used my old daubers to add the pigment on my black card stock if you do not have old dauber then consider using an InkBlusher. To make an impact on this design, I first added white ink and then the colored ink on top. This gives me a brighter vibrant impression and I like it a lot. I used a sentiment "sending hugs" stamped in black and added few details to the inside of the flowers with my white gel pen to finish the card.
