Black Ice and Copper

April 12, 2018

This card once more uses the Black Ice technique but this time I have used Copper Foil.  I dragged the Basic Black Archival ink over the Copper Foil and then stamped the image from the Butterfly Basics stamp set using the same ink.  The panel is covered with Versamark ink and Clear Embossing Powder which is heat set.  I wrapped the panel with the Copper Trim and tied a knot before attaching the Copper Foil to Basic Black card.  The panel is attached to Thick Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Butterfly Basics stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out using one of the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  The greeting is attached to a Basic Black scalloped oval cut using the same dies and attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped part of the floral image onto the lower left hand corner using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

So simple but really pretty.

Bye for now,

    Thanks for the quick, easy to understand lesson. I need to have a picture and directions to try something – not a video. Appreciate your lesson.

      Thanks Dorothy for your lovely comment. It’s not always easy to describe how you achieve a particular finish but I am glad that my instructions made it easy for you to understand this great technique.
