Belair Creative Cards class this month learns Black Ice Technique

This month at Belair we will be learning a new technique called Black Ice Technique.  A fellow Stampin Up demonstrator, Melissa Kerman came up with this idea.  Google her name and the term Black Ice Technique and you will find lots of inspiration.  You can see a blog post of hers here.  .

On my first card I have used a piece of silver foil cardstock.  Swiped the foil with black archival ink.  I have then stamped the flower in archival Black.  Heat set.  I have applied versamark straight over the top and then added embossing powder over the top.  Heat set.  The flower has then been coloured with Stampin Blends.  Add more versamark and clear embossing powder and heat set again.  Layer on a piece of black mat.  Layer on the base which os soft sky.


My second card is a variation.  On a piece of foil card, apply ink as on our first card.  Emboss with the flowers from petal pairs textured impressions embossing folder.  Swipe the archival Black pad over the raised image.  Apply the versamark over the top and add clear embossing powder.  I just love the way this has turned out.  Layer on basic black and then on a whisper white base.  The greeting is from Beautiful Day stamp set.
