Black Ice

April 9, 2018

I’m sure you would have seen a number of cards made using this gorgeous technique.  Well today I had my first play after watching a video by Melissa Kerman on You Tube.  The technique is not very hard but you do need to take a little care over each step.  I used the same colours as Melissa did in her video but I used the Waterfront Stamp set to create the image panel.  I lightly dragged the Basic Black Archival ink over Basic Gray card and then stamped the greeting from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.  I set the panel aside to let the ink dry while I created my focal panel.  I dragged the Basic Black Archival ink over Silver Foil and then stamped the mountains, water and trees using the same ink.  I used my heat gun to set the ink and then dragged Versamark ink over the panel, sprinkled it with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I had to add versamark twice to my panel and I still missed a few bit but I am happy with my first attempt.  I attached the panel to Basic Black card, then the Basic Gray stamped panel and lastly to scored and folded Basic Black card.  I dragged the Basic Black Archival ink over a narrow strip of Basic Gray and attached it to the bottom of Whisper White card.  The panel is attached to the inside of the card.

This is such a fun technique to play with.  I have a couple more cards to share with you using this technique.

Bye for now
