Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you!!! Today, it is the Black Ice Technique which I learned from the fabulous stamper, Karla Endris!!! Thanks Karla for this fun technique!!!
This picture sure doesn’t do this card any justice because you need to rotate it to see the fun shine!!!
I started with a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock and stamped the tin tile image on each corner. This is from the Country Home Stamp Set and I used Coastal Cabana Ink for that subtle look. Next, I took a piece of the Galvanized Metallic Paper and lightly brushed Stazon Ink up and down the cardstock. Don’t be too heavy handed as you want it to look streaky and not solid. Then I stamped the flowers and pitcher from the Country Home Stamp Set in Stazon Ink and set it with the Heat Tool so it wouldn’t smear.
Now it is time for the ice part of the Black Ice Technique. Simply press the VersaMark Ink all over the top of your image to coat the entire piece. Then add Clear Embossing Powder for all of it and set it with the heat tool. Now you have that glassy shine of your image! I finished it off by coloring with the Stampin’ Blends Markers and layering it onto Basic Black cardstock. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals for some texture, I added it to the card front!
Here is another sample that I created using that same Country Home Stamp Set!
