a Liitle Black Magic...please?

Good Saturday Morning Ladies!
We at Just Us Girls have a little Black Magic to share with you this fine morning courteous of the ever so talented Andrea.  She is challenging us to this fun technique called black magic and a tutorial can be found here if your not familiar with it.  I wasn't familiar with it at all but once I gave it a go it's rather addicting!  I couldn't find my good colored pencils from Stampin' up to save my soul so I picked up a cheap set of 24 pencils from Rose Art at Wally World and they worked just as well.
Here is my take on the technique.

I used my PTI Botanical Silhouettes stamp set for my card.

For all the deets and more inspiration head on over to the JUGS blog.

We also had a call for a new Design team member and we have not one but two new JUG Heads! 
Please stop by Lynn and Vicki's blogs and give them a warm welcome to the team!!! 
 Both these ladies are very talented and we can't wait for you to see their work!!!
