Technique – Black Ice with High Tide

At a recent technique class, we used foil paper and heat embossing to create stunning Black Ice effects.

Card 1:

This is on silver foil and is the one that participants made during the class.

Tips:

  • An archival black ink pad is required for this technique. Stazon Tuxedo Black and Basic Black Archival ink pads are two that will work well.
  • Using the direct to paper technique, drag the black ink pad down the top of Soft Sky card base.
  • Turn the card upside down and repeat the technique.
  • Black Ice Panel:
    • Using the direct to paper technique, drag the black ink pad down the top of the silver foil.
    • Turn the foil upside down and repeat the technique.
    • Heat set the ink with a heat tool.
    • Stamp the images from High Tide using black ink.
    • Heat set the ink with a heat tool.
    • Using the direct to paper technique, lightly drag the Versamark ink pad down the top of the silver foil.
    • Turn the foil upside down and repeat the technique.
    • Cover the foil with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with a heat tool.
    • Layer the art panel onto the Whisper White panel.
    • Colour a piece of 1/8″ Sheer Whisper White Ribbon with a Soft Sky marker and then attach around the art panel.
  • Sentiment Panel:
    • Punch out a Tailored Tag shape with Silver Foil.
    • Repeat the procedures used for the Black Ice Panel, stamping the sentiment from Lots of Happy instead of High Tide images.
    • Attach to the base of the art panel and then use Dimensionals to attach the combined art / sentiment panels to the base card.
