Black Ice Technique and Falling Flowers

Today I am sharing the  Black Ice Technique – it gives such a unique focal point to a card.  It uses the foil card, I used the Champagne Foil  but  to be honest it was hard to stop making them and it works perfectly on the Silver, Gold and Copper Foils as well.

I think you could use any stamp set for this technique ~ I chose Falling Flowers Stamp Set

Oh! and I am so glad that Stampin’ UP! are bringing back  Black Stazon – because this is a solvent based ink it dries very quickly allowing you to complete the technique so much quicker. 🙂

Card base:  8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Real Red Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4

Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Basic Black Card

Layer 2: 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 Real Red Card

Layer 3: 3 x 3 Champagne Foil

Ink Color: Black Stazone

I rarely use Real Red other than Christmas or Valentine’s day but I just love the 1/8 Real Red Solid Ribbon ~ so that was my starting point.

Once the floral design was stamped I gently wiped a Versamark pad across the card then sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder and setting with a heat gun.

I recommend you attach the embossed foil to the Real Red layer with Tear and Tape Double sided adhesive – it just needs a little extra help to fix into place.
