Something a little different for me

Ok this week when I saw what the challenge was over at Just Us Girls I wasn't sure about having a go but then thats what challenges are all about at the end of the day, challenging ourselves to try something new so without further ado here is my card for JUGs 'Black Magic' challenge and if your not sure what Black Magic is pop over to the JUGs blog and check it out I'm glad I did! lol

My image is a papermania stamp which I think I've only used once or twice before (I think I may have found a new lease of life for it now! lol) inked in white pigment ink, heat dried and then coloured with wc pencils and a little gel pen for effect.  The sentiment is from PTI and the die cut is the new Crafty Cutter Vintage Label die from Crafty Sentiments.  The cs is all from my scrap drawers and then I added some ribbon and buttons.  Kept the whole thing simple so as not to detract from the image.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Stamp Scarp & Doodle Saturdays ~ Things that are round
Sentimental Sundays #76 ~ Anything Goes
Crazy Challenge #88 ~ Sketch
