I am teaching the Black Ice Technique in my classes next week (22nd and 23rd May) and this is one of the cards we are making
If you want to try this technique at home, you’ll need Foil Sheets (I used copper, but you can also use silver or gold). Try not to touch the foil sheet as you might get fingerprint marks. Also Basic Black Archival ink, Versamark ink, Clear embossing powder, the Stamp set of your choice and a Heat Tool
1. Cut foil sheet to size, and using the inkpad ‘direct to paper’ technique, gently swipe/drag your Basic Black inkpad down the length of the foil piece (tip: use a dab of snail to hold foil piece to your gridpaper to stop it moving around)
2. Stamp your image in Basic Black Archival ink onto the foil piece. Allow to dry (or use heat tool) 3. Use the Versamark inkpad ‘direct to paper’ technique, to VERY LIGHTLY swipe down the length of the foil piece
4. Sprinkle with clear embossing powder, tip off excess and set with heat tool. (tip: if you have been too heavy-handed with the Versamark, lightly dust off some embossing powder before heating it)
5. You can also colour the final result with Blends
I believe Melissa Kerman is the originator of this technique.
