Hello stampers,
     Welcome back to another BSU challenge week. This week we decided to focus on the Black Ice Technique. I've been interested in trying it for awhile but I'm sorry to say that while I think it is absolutely & beautifully done by so many people, mine came up way short. After many attempts & several pieces of foil thrown away, I finally decided to settle with the one I made this morning, even though it isn't my best it was the best one to turn out semi-well.
     I started the card with a Basic Black Cardstock base, followed by a layer of Gray Granite Cardstock that I had embossed using the Big Shot & Sublte TIEF. Next, I took a piece of Silver Foil & went about starting the technique (you should be able to find several videos out there by looking under Black Ice Technique) with Stazon Ink. I decided to used the trees from the Winter Woods Stamp Set. Once I was done, I backed the foil piece up with a layer of Basic Black Cardstock. I do hope if you decide to try this that you have better luck than I did with it!
Card Measurements
  • Basic Black base- 5.5"x8.5"
  • Gray Granite layer- 4"x5.25"
  • Basic Black Layer-3.25"x4"
  • Silver Foil- 3"x3.75"
  •      Don't forget to head on over to Carol's blog HERE and then to Stace's blog HERE. To see what both did for this week's challenge. I'm sure both will be fantastic. Hope you try this challenge out too! We have a new Facebook group if you want to join us and show us what you came up with HERE.
