Hello friends. I'm playing along with this month's CAS Mix Up challenge AGAIN, because several people have been using the "Black Ice" technique (you can find a how to video HERE) and I was blown away by how BEAUTIFUL these cards were!!
Here's what I came up with using the Black Ice technique and Metal:
It almost looks like a black and white photo of a snowflake doesn't it? You start with silver mirror cs and lightly swipe a black Stazon pad across the cs. Once it dried I ran my piece through my Big Shot with an older Darice embossing folder with smaller snowflakes, and then lightly ran my Versamark pad across the top and then then embossed with clear embossing powder. The shine is FABULOUS!!
I die cut an Alexis Snowflake from SSS and embossed it 3 times with silver to give the metal look and glued it to my Black Ice panel. I matted this with a piece of white to give the black & white photo look and then backed that with some foam for dimension and adhered to a white card base. My sentiment is from PTI's Peaceful Pinecones set.
Check out the cards from the rest of the DT and from those already in the gallery and then play along right HERE. This challenge is open till the 24th.
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
