Today I am sharing a super cool technique that was taught by a few of my team members that attended the recent NC Demos SU event at our team meeting- Black Ice. Thank you Jen , Aimee and Stephanie!
This fabulous technique was created by Melissa Kerman. In area of the South that we live, our roads are primarily black top and when we have freezing cold wet weather we tend to get quite a bit of what is referred to as Black Ice on the roads. This technique gives the same appearance we see on the roads, but it far cooler!
Don’t you think this is a great masculine card?
To create the Black Ice Technique :
- Drag the Black Archival ink pad across the 3-1/4″ x 3″ Silver Foil paper and then stamped the images from the Waterfront stamp set. I used a bit too much pressure when I drug the ink pad, but think it still turned out nice.
- Dry the surface of the paper with the heat tool.
- Drag Versamark ink pad across the paper surface.
- Emboss the surface in clear powder.
Additional Card layers:
- 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ (folded in half) Basic Black cardstock
- 5-1/4″x 4″ Basic Grey cardstock
- 4-1/4″x 3-1/2″ Basic Black cardstock
- 4″x 3-1/4″ Whisper White cardstock
- 5-1/4″x 4″ Whisper White cardstock (inside)
Leave me a comment. I would love to hear your thoughts on today’s card.
