Black Magic

Hello friends!
I am popping in to share an unique approach of creating a bright card with black card stock. 
thanks (close-up)

Do you know what my coloring mediums are? 
I will save all the details on how I did it. 
Once you see the supply list, you can figure it out (wink!).
thanks

In real life, the peonies in my yard look like this....(I took this photo over a week ago).

I gasped with pure and utter delight at this amazingly beautiful card. So thrilled to see it and looks like distressing crayons caused these cool results. It really is stunning!!

Wow Virginia - the Distress Crayons look great on the black cardstock! Just love what you did with those bold flowers!! I must confess my crayons haven't come out of the packaging too much yet - you've given me inspiration to bring them out!!

Your peonies are lovely. No, I didn't guess the coloring medium. When I saw...crayons...I thought well I have one set of those give black a try. So that is what I will do...I think I like your sentiment the most. I must give a try to stacking a single word.

You have some lovely peonies in your yard. I remember when I was a young girl pre-teen, my grandma Mimi, had peonies lined up on both sides of her sidewalk from her front porch to the street. Every color of flower from light to dark pinks, rose, to white, reds. Such a beautiful sight. There was probably 50 bushes if not more. Everyone would come around Memorial Day to gather some for bouquets to take to the cementaries for their loved ones grave sites. Oh by-the-way..I'm age 71 right now. Wishing Grandma still lived there with her beautiful peonies. Also...I just had to buy Altenews Peony stamp set to remember Grandma by.

Black magic indeed! The flowers look beautiful! Sadly our peonies didn't do so well this year, the weather just wasn't conducive to a lot of blooms. :(

Oh WOW!! This is awesome!! Now I can FINALLY use my Distress Crayons that have been sitting in my supplies. I bought them and then was stumped on how to utilize them. AMAZING design!
