Black Ice with Winter Woods

Good Morning and Happy Thursday! I have another fun technique card to share with you! This one is using the Black Ice technique that has been really popular this year and I finally decided to give it a try. So, here it is:

This card was a lot of fun to make using one of my most favorite stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog of all time. (I really do adore these "nature" sets with trees, leaves etc. and this one is no exception)

Anyhoo, to create this card, I started with a standard card base of Basic Black, measuring 8.5" x 5.5" scored and folded at 4.25" a layer of Smoky Slate 4" x 5.25" and a second piece of Basic Black measuring 4.25" x 3.25" and the focal piece, Silver Foil paper measuring 4" x 3". Using Black Stazon ink, I dragged the ink pad down the foil paper, doing one side at a time, then turning 1/2 turn and doing the same. Allow the ink a moment to dry, then stamp the row of trees from the Winter Woods stamp set also in Black Stazon ink. Again, allow a moment for the ink to dry, then drag the Versamark ink pad over the entire image and then coat with clear embossing powder. Using the Heat tool, melt the embossing powder. This creates the icy look.

Attach the stamped image to the Basic Black layer and add it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. The effect of this technique is quite stunning and dramatic, unfortunately, I was not able to capture just how stunning in the photograph, you'll just have to try it to see for yourself. I promise you won't be disappointed!

Happy Stamping,
